Since your response was very encouraging, I send the links with all the
comparison - all are of the New Delhi Region:

osmarender at z12 - works if the renderer runs with correct hindi font.
grammer is perfect.

mapnik at z12 - has tried hindi but is getting grammar wrong:

osmarender at z11 - in last 2 weeks, never refreshed. Like duplicate
place errors was fixed 2 weeks back.

Font on my ubuntu 8.1/openoffice2.4: 
DejaVu Sans: works nicely
Alternatively: Lohit Hindi,Aksharyogini also does

DejaVu Serif: wrong font with very wrong grammar - the font i believe
mapnik is using.

I could try sending the font file along the thread if that would help.
