Thanks to Sumit,  Somendra, Amitabh and Venkataraman  for sharing your

If information with  me is correct, then that imply  that some serious
work in  typesetting in Hindi is  done after about 10  year of release
"devnag" package. Now developer may not be  a heavy user, and if heavy
users are not there then package cannot be refined or developed.

Now which package is best? For this  the person who uses these package
are requested to have a chat  session among themselves and if possible
produce a comparative study to help others as well as to themselves.

IMHO, preprocessor technoque may be very beneficial, if you write some
thing to produce  right output in one language  (say Hindi). Then just
changing environment should produce  correct output for other language
i.e  then producing  output in  Punjabi, Gujrati,  Marathi, should  be
matter of changing environment. Is it so?
