I guess you have to add your Devnagari font to the proper <alias> categories.
Here is what I have in my /etc/fonts/local.conf for example:

  Sans-serif faces
                        <family>Bitstream Vera Sans</family>
                        <family>Nimbus Sans L</family>
                        <family>Luxi Sans</family>
                        <family>Arial Unicode MS</family>
                        <family>Kochi Gothic</family>
                        <family>AR PL KaitiM GB</family>
                        <family>AR PL KaitiM Big5</family>
                        <family>Baekmuk Dotum</family>

Don't forget to add the font to the appropriate "monospace" if you want it it
as a substitute for Courier.
