Hi Sreenivasa,

Have you tried TeXworks?  (See 
http://code.google.com/p/texworks/downloads/list for a recent Mac 
binary).  This is what I use--simple, but gets the job done with no fuss.

I am away from home and don't have access to my Mac, so maybe others can 
help you more, But I am surprised to hear that TextEdit (I assume that's 
what you mean when you typed Texedit) doesn't work.  I don't know any 
Indian languages but have used it for several other languages and it has 
always been well behaved.  I assume you have enabled the appropriate 
keyboard in System Preferences/International.

Best wishes,
