Dear AJ Misra,

You are likely encountering an issue with how your email client is handling the encoding of the messages, reading it as Western European instead of UTF-8. So it may be a matter of fixing your client-side settings.
>From the server side, one potential solution is to login to your list options page (http://listoptions.indology.info) and try changing the encoding of the digests from MIME to Plain Text.

Incidentally, as a reminder to us all, the list options page is where one would go to start/stop receiving Digests, change one’s email or password, temporarily suspend email delivery, and perform an assortment of other features of the list.
with best wishes,
