Loading the package "lscape", with
\usepackage{lscape}, and typing

\begin{landscale}
Tamil/Malayalam text (in Unicode rachana/keli, etc)
\end{landscape}

does not place the Tamil/Malayalam text in landscape mode.
Only the page and the page numbering are placed in landsacape
and the actual Text is in portrait mode.  I guess this has something to do
with'"odvips", since the same problem occurs with ordinary English
text with  lambda + odvips.
DO I have to use any flag with "odvips" command?
Any help in placing Tamil/Omega text  in landscape mode will be appreciated.
