I think it maybe font issue. Not only in pdf file but inside LyX too same text is being displayed. see the screenshot below. The text display in with red circle (in LaTeX source pane) is the correct one, This is how text should appear everywhere. But in LyX main main body and in pdf it is showing incorrectly. Note that this result I am getting with both fonts(Siddhanta.ttf and Sanskrit.ttf) those were given in Windows Devnagari wiki and I have set those fonts in Document Settings as well as LyX look and feel.
I wonder how LyX is able to display correct font in LaTeX source pane.
