render bengali(and possibly other indic) font in vim


Hello friends,
I am trying to write in bengali(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bengali_alphabet)
using gvim. The font rendering is not correct.
I have tried gedit, and rendering is correct there.
To compare, see http://imagebin.org/261702 for gedit and http://imagebin.org/261703 for gvim (all the non-english is actually bengaly, see the difference in eg line number 590)

How can I get correct rendering in (g)vim?

and if that helps:
Code:
$vi --version
