You can select Marathi in LibreOffice using TOOLS > OPTIONS > LANGUAGE SETTINGS > LANGUAGES > COMPLEX TEXT LAYOUTS (CTL) > MARATHI. Then choose a font that supports Marathi like LOHIT DEVANAGARI . There is a language pack for MARATHI which you can install, to provide fuller support.

You can use INSERT SPECIAL CHARACTERs for inserting characters from the font such as आखधनहज़ड़ॠॾॿ२क़. But I am sorry, I have no knowledge of direct keyboard support and normal input for the language. Still that may get you started...Peter

I can see upto TOOLS > OPTIONS > LANGUAGE SETTINGS > LANGUAGES > COMPLEX TEXT LAYOUTS . And there is nothing that shows me word Marathi. I could not understand or do operation (CTL) > MARATHI. I tried pressing (CTL) and selecting Marathi. It did not work.

(CTL) means COMPLEX TEXT LAYOUT not press the CTL (control) button. Select COMPLEX TEXT LAYOUT (CTL) and to the right where it probably says (NONE) use the right arrow and scroll down until you see MARATHI. You will scroll down past AMHARIC, lots of ARABIC first and another twenty or so languages.
