Another possibility is to use ucharclasses. This package is non-free,
you can freely download it from CTAN and use it but you are not
allowed to distribute it. This is the reason why you cannot find it in
TeX distributions. This is a small sample (no need to change fonts

\setmainfont{Charis SIL}
I can write in English और वाक्य का एक भाग हिंदी में हो सकता है।
