Now the descender for both Lohit Tamil and Tamil Classical are -380. Thank you.

No probs, I generated the TTF myself.

You mean as in a text patch file? So it will be possible to execute the actual
set of changes requested? OK, and I have used the diff command, but please tell
me how to use diff command to output patch in required format so I can do that.
(sfddiff output seems too verbose.)

Basically you should know that for font editing purposes I'm not using
FontForge but a licensed copy of High-Logic Font Creator
(http://www.high-logic.com/font-editor/fontcreator.html), so all my changes are
done directly in the TTF. 

I'm not clear as to how to convert the TTF back to SFD i.e. text format from
which to produce patch for you. Please advise.

[Formerly you had some concerns about GPL-compliance of TTF format. I hope you
no longer have those concerns. See
especially the words: """TTF format gives you access to full useful
information. It *is* a native/source format."""]
