The xindy modules for index creation in Hindi and Marathi have just be released. The software is almost ready for inclusion to xindy distribution although some problems have not been solved yet. More information is available in the draft document which is the part of the package.
Important note: After fixing the bug in beta 2 the modules work in TeX Live 2010.
The package contains a few test files. The tests processed with LaTeX are available below in the PDF format for those who wish to see the result but do not like to download the whole package. The indices in the test documents contain all words irrespective of flexion. The goal is to demonstrate alphabetic sorting, not to explain the way of index creation.
You can see the slides for my lecture for the TeXperience 2010 conference (in English). The video will probably be available soon.
You can download the full source file xindy-devanagari.zip. This package contains all above mentined PDF files. Some generated files are also available there. They are prepared for installation. The installation script is suitable for TeX Live 2008, 2009, and 2010 for unix systemx. It will not work in other TeX distributions.
Alternatively you can download easy to install package
This package contains neither documentation nor the source files.
Installation is done by unpacking it to the proper directory. The directory
structure has been changed slightly in TeX Live 2010. In the older versions the
xindy modules were present in the subdirectories of
tex, and others could
be found. Now these directories live one level lower in
texmf/xindy/modules. Unpack the file into the appropriate directory
according to the distribution you have.
The license of the package is GPL v2+.
