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.

It's a regular Left to right font.

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...
