 OhOh. Seeing the screenshot it seems pango is not using the Xft
modules ( text is not antialiased ).
 Try running app with GDK_USE_XFT=1
 $ GDK_USE_XFT=1 gedit
 $ export GDK_USE_XFT=1
 $ gedit

Also check if indic xft modules have been built , If pango was
compiled & installed without fontconfig/Xft they would not be built
