Thanks for the inputs.

WIth these changes, hyphenation does work, but there are some issues as

1. Hyphenation character is not displayed (or not displayed properly).

2. Section and other headings have some problem. They partially work when
used with `*' option, but spill out some font related info.

2. I also see some error as below and more (refer .log file in attached zip)

kpathsea: Running mktexmf
! I can't find file `'.
<*> \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input

Please type another input file name
! Emergency stop.
<*> \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input

Appreciate your help to resolve it.
