As we know justify, align text in left and right edge but as in some case we want to brake line into two segment and middle symbol remain in fixed position, can it be possible in writer. As shown in the image included. Also the last numbering is aligned beautifully how can we do this in writer? Can it be done by tab adjustment?

It is left to right language, as there is linux native unicode hindi and marathi language, but i prefer to use kruti-dev-010 or devlys-10 font (As old hindi typewriter use). In second image Hindi pronounciation in English is given, notice here all commas in a vertical line, we can do it by tab but can not justify the text before it.

I can't read Indian scripts and I can't get an idea of the goal. Can you edit the question to provide an approximate translation in English? Main issue: is this a left-to-right or right-to-left language?

Justifying independent segments within a line can't be done with tabs. However, there may be a workaround based on sections.

Provided the layout shown in the screenshot is only a small part of the document and if you accept the constraint of losing automatic text flow, here is an imperfect workaround. It relies on the assumption that your "paragraphs" never exceed one line.

Note: I alluded in my comment to "sections" but they proved not practical.

Create a table for the "poem": 3 columns as 2 for the half verses and a small one at right for the numbering. Each row will contain a verse. Write (or copy if already existing) the first half-verse, including its "comma", in the left large column; do the same for the second half-verse in the center large column.

Define a paragraph style with name VerseJustify (or any name meaningful for you). In the Alignment tab, select Justified and last line as Justified. Tune the other tabs as desired (indents, spacing, font, …). Apply this style to all half-verse cells of the table. It may also be applied to the numbering column if it is "compatible" (thus simplifying application by selecting first the whole table).
