If you want to make a font that is used to write from right to left, then you need to assign RTL code points to the glyphs.

For a regular left to right font, you could use a ligature to solve the problem.

Sir, thank you so much for your reply.
It's a regular Left to right font.
All these ligature thing seems like Greek to me, i cannot find any reference anywhere in understanding them.
Please can you provide me with some easy details of how to do it, or if you know any link to tutorials regarding understand these in the dummies way for beginners...

I am not familiar with how Hindi fonts are designed, but a Standard Ligature glyph substitution should work.

Look at an existing font to see how others do it.

See my tutorial on Adding OpenType Features

Can you guide me how to create a ligature as below on any english font. The example may help me understand a lot regarding it. All seems like Greek to me now...
