Dear All,

The problem is already solved. A friendly and kind advice (or 'hitopadeśa')
from Dr. Viacheslav Zaytsev from the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts of
the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg.

To whom my special thanks.

In fact a simple operation. To produce, say, *ndrya*: from the symbols
table of, say, Arial Unicode, select *न*, add *virama*, add *द*, add *virama
*, add *र*, add *virama*, add य:

[na + virama - n + da - nda + virama - nd + ra - ndra + virama - ndr + ya =

न - न् - न्द - न्द् - न्द्र - न्द्र् - न्द्र्य

द्द ष्ट्र ह्म

The same rule goes for santipur OT, bengali fonts, like shonar.ttf or
vrinda.ttf, etc.
