Loading a different locale for a different language and mapping the keyboard events are two different things.
If you want to enable Malyalam langauge strings and other things you should probably try to install Malyalam Locale for your version of Linux.
But if you want to catch the Keyboard events and process it..you will have to create events and callbacks in GTK.callbacks are functions that will be executed when certain event takes place.
