It awfully sounds like a problem with rendering fixed width fonts, where e.g. a 
char array of length 'n' should occupy same amount of space no matter what 
characters are in it.
Think ASCII (or unicode) diagrams surrounded by devanagri text. I don't think 
its possible in context of devanagari to do this except to stick to this 
"broken" jodakshar (is there a pun hidden here? ).
