It isn't enough because the KBD-TRANSLATE for the bengali-probhat input
method was set to nil so Quail does not care about
[ KBD-TRANSLATE=nil is good for bengali-itrans which is phonetic but not
  so for bengali-probhat which is a keyboard layout akin to QWERTY.  ]

There is no need for that.  Quail takes care of it when we give it the
right argument when defining the input method.

TL;DR: We simply need to change two arguments to quail-define-package to
get the desired behaviour.  There's nothing more to do (other than
perhaps having pixel perfect alignment of the keyboard layout in the
*Help* buffer).
