You can use the fallback mechanism to use a different font for characters which 
aren’t available in the main font.

\definefallbackfamily [mainface] [rm] [Devanagari MT] 
\definefontfamily     [mainface] [rm] [TeX Gyre Pagella]

\definefontfamily     [mainface] [mm] [TeX Gyre Pagella Math]


Danke – धन्यवाद
