Personally suggest to redesign the logo without dependency to a specific font - just imagine those guys who has no such font , or even no Nepali fonts installed on their device. So I suggest to replace such design:

<tspan x="2.8620985" y="23.244619" font-family="Kalimati" font-weight="normal" stroke-width=".6183">विकिपिडिया</tspan>

And also, there's no need to design a separate "gray" style logo, as there's a css rule:

.minerva-header .branding-box {
    opacity: 0.66;
}

which makes the wordmark at the left hand side of the search box looks "gray".

I have converted the files (#1 #2) from text to object. Now anyone without any Nepali fonts can read it correctly.
