Typing in devanagari script in the terminal

Hello to everyone and team garuda.

I was wondering if there is any way of using devanagari script for typing in the terminal. I enjoy using the terminal for editing text and other files and often while working on documents in hindi script i have to switch to a gui application because the fonts aren't rendered correctly in the terminal.

I was hoping you could shed some light on this isuue, if there are any ways to solve this or any work going on in this direction. Many thanks!
