(Refer http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=11103)

I am copying Rustom who has more understanding of devanagari. He can
suggest the default input method to go with that particular language
environment and also test your earlier patch.

C-h L Devanagari actually gives the following output

Devanagari language environment

Such languages using Devanagari script as Hindi and Marathi
are supported in this language environment.

Input methods:
  devanagari-inscript ("DevIS" in mode line)
  devanagari-aiba ("DevAB" in mode line)
  devanagari-kyoto-harvard ("DevKH" in mode line)
  devanagari-itrans ("DevIT" in mode line)

Character sets:
  unicode: Unicode (ISO10646)

Coding systems:
  utf-8 (`U' in mode line):
        UTF-8 (no signature (BOM))
        (alias: utf-8 mule-utf-8)


My 2 cents will be that the current defaults of devanagari-aiba need
to be changed to devanagari-itrans. I don't speak the language that
uses devanagari script.
