 To use xkb files, do the following
 copy the xkb files to /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/

  # cp inscript.hi.xkb  /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xkb/symbols/hi
 (do same for other languages also)

 to load keymap 
  $ setxkbmap -layout hi -option grp:ctrl_shift_toggle

 use CTRL+SHIFT  toggle
  $ setxkbmap -layout hi -option grp:caps
 lets you toggle with CAPS lock (but caps lock definition changes for current X session, donno yet how to get it back).

hope this helps
