First make sure you have taken the dataType as nvarchar and also you have to implement the concept of Globalization and Localization:

► Globalization:
In Globalization, an application is developed to support various languages and cultures. Its features and code design independent of a single language or locale.

► Localization In Localization, an application is adapted for a local market. It may include translation of the UI to the local language and customizing its features if necessary. 

Here is one nice article you can see :

if you want to show the text in web application, then you need to do the same thing. Assing the same font for the html text box also.

But you cannot expect all the users to have the same font.

So, the best solution is to use Unicode fonts.

Check the below link. Using this tool you can get the Hindi text in Unicode.

If you are using the above unicode, then you can show the Hindi text in browsers and in your windows applications using the same format.

 I had done this work already,I have created a table in sql server using nvarchar datatype in place of varchar and using above insert statement there are only two columns in my application(station and vehiclename ) having hindi text text value..
          string sql = "insert into JourneyDetailsOfAvehocle(Date,Station,VehicleName,TotalKM,Totaljourneycost,AdvanceAmount,ToleAndParkingAmount,DueAmount) values('" + dateTimePicker1.Text + "',N'" + textBox2.Text + "',N'" + textBox3.Text + "',N'"+textBox4.Text+"','"+textBox5.Text+"','"+textBox6.Text+"','"+textBox7.Text+"','"+textBox8.Text+"')";

You need to convert unicode to hindi devnagari using regular expression and then it store to the sql server.

string i = "yourinput";
Regex rx = new Regex(@"([0-9A-Fa-f]{4});");
string output = rx.Replace(i, match => ((char)Int32.Parse(match.Groups[1].Value, NumberStyles.HexNumber)).ToString());

And pass it to the database through the dataset
