You didn't tell enough to answer those questions.

  . is this a text-mode (a.k.a. "TTY") frame or a GUI frame?
  . what kind of "numbers" do you see? please show examples
  . what else is in file1 and file2 besides the Kannada text? what are
    the differences between file1 and file2?
  . what happens if you create a file with _only_ the Kannada text?
  . what is the major mode Emacs uses for each of the files?
