You probably need a font that contains Devanagari.  From the Emacs
INSTALL file:

,----
|* intlfonts-VERSION.tar.gz
|
| The intlfonts distribution contains X11 fonts in various encodings
| that Emacs can use to display international characters.  If you see a
| non-ASCII character appear as a hollow box, that means you don't have
| a font for it.
