The following reply reached directly to me and probably didn't reach the
list, hence quoting the same with my comments inline so that it helps all.

you are right. I could see the logic. with plain text, padma code is not
able to know what font it is written in.
well, I wrote those html codes its in the plain text font, and tried to
convert and it didn't work.
Then, instead of composing in plain text, I composed in HTML, and
changed the font of those letters itself to Chanakya. As chanakya is
installed in my pc, those become visible in hindi.
Then I saved that mail through sent later, and in unsent messages
folder, tried to transform manually to unicode
It worked. the chankya coded part got transformed to Unicode
Thanks, I could understand how to make it work.
Hope you could incorporate enough error messages and guidelines in
future versions of padam for people like me.
