Thanks for the reply. I set Malayalam as my language in windows

malayalam words. But when I run my GTK application. I get error like

Locales in what sense? The same GTK+ message catalogs are available
(in a full installation) on Windows as on Unix. Taking a quick glance,
I recognize at least hi (Hindi), bn (Bangla), mr (Marathi), ml
(Malayalam) and ta (Tamil) as Indic languages.
If you mean Indic keyboard support, there are some known problems in
supporting 3rd-party keyboard layouts, which are claimed to be popular
at least for some languages.
If you mean Indic script support, yes, Pango on Windows handles them.
Or actually, all the hard work is done by the Uniscribe component in
Windows. I.e. if Windows itself supports an Indic script, it should
work in GTK+, too.
