Description of problem:
Lohit Devanagari covers the Devanagari unicode code set and uses same glyphs for the languages which use Devanagari script. But it seems Marathi language needs changes in some of the glyphs.
Attached a PDF document with the required changes. The document is written by Sushant S. Devlekar
based on Maharashtra gov. order http://www.maharashtra.gov.in/GR/Marathi/2009/11/06/2009110613044700
Found following point after comparing draft quickly with Lohit Devanagari:
ल श श्न श्च श्व

Only localized shape for ल श are not available now.
