At last found the static method to do this.
view.ModifyFont(FontDescription.FromString("Courier 16"));
FontDescription.FromString("Courier 16") is the way to change, when u try to
make an object of FontDescription class and then set its values it does not
work (at least for me didn't work). And it is very difficult to find c# and
gtk# equivalents reading c and pygtk documentation.
