Yes, i will fix this by making lohit tamil priority 65-0

This is really bug from gnu-free fonts, they should not use this priority
see "/usr/share/fontconfig/templates/fontconfig-priorities.txt"

"65-69 Fonts with less common encodings, ending with fonts that provide,       
coverage of exotic unicode blocks at the expense of drawing,quality"

should report bug against them

but one more thing 
gnu-free providing serif fonts, and lohit is sans
so it is ok if gnu-free get selected for
fc-match serif:lang=ta
