Many thanks to James E. Agenbroad and Marco Cimarosti. Your answer has
solved my doubt.

Infact this is the way the malyalam script is printed or type written as
the no of glyphs are limited. The virama or `chandrakala' (as it is called
in malayalam) is also used to join two consonents which do not have any
specefic glyphs.

In fact this is the grammaticaly correct way to join two consonents.
