It is almost certainly an issue with the locales supported
by Java. You will probably find that Hindi works. Which java
are you using (try "java -version")?

For Sun java, a list of supported locales might be found at
one of these places (for a different Sun Java version, try
changing the version number in the URL):
1.4.2: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/intl/locale.doc.html
1.5.0: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/intl/locale.doc.html

Don't know Java well enough to tell if other locales can be
added. Your other alternative is to use Potlatch.
