SCIM works well in GNOME gui programs like openoffice,gedit etc.
I tried to write hindi in gnome-terminal.
Result is 'improper.jpg' attached.improper.jpg
In gvim it appears like this

The only terminal 'mlterm' supports hindi rendering.
Here is what I did with help of developer 'araki ken'

Code:
(1)installed mlterm-3.0.6post-20110807 using 

./configure --enable-fribidi --enable-ind --enable-m17nlib --enable-scim  --enable-anti-alias
make
make install
(2)Created file ~/.mlter/aafont containing 
 ISCII_HINDI = DV\-TTYogesh 23 
Installed font DVYG0ntt.ttf from http://mlterm.sf.net/DVYG0ntt.ttf
Created another file ~/.mlterm/key containing  Shift+space=IM_HOTKEY 
Though I use scim-transliteration whose hotkey is ctrl+space , so both combinations work.
(3)Now i ran
mlterm -E utf8 --im=scim  --bi=false --ind --type=xft -V
Result.jpg shows beautiful hindi letters .

if you know any other way to write hindi in VIM using SCIM . Please comment .
