There are no Hindi hyphenation patterns in TeX right now.  LaTeX
prints a list of all supported hyphenation patterns to screen at the
beginning of each run.
However, there are Hindi hyphenation patterns for OpenOffice:


Since OpenOffice uses the same hyphenation algorithm as TeX (slightly
modified), it's likely that you can use them.  Maybe someone more
experienced with hyphenation patterns can tell you whether they have
to be adapted.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
