John, this is related to the PDF export option in Wiki. The current
solution  won't support Indic scripts.  There are several bugs related to
this. One is this. https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28206


An alternate solution (not a good solution) is using LibreOffice by copying
text and format the text outside wiki. But I hope a solution will come as
we move forward. I know Santhosh was working on this earlier. Do not know
its status now.
