Both mean sari, a traditional dress worn by indian women, Ok, I think I know the answer, if I am wrong correct me.

Both are written the same- they are for sure the same, but one is written in hindi and the other is probably written in sanskrit or any other language with the same script as hindi, now when google maps it for searches it converts it into puny code and sees them only as a punycode, and the puny code for the first one is different from the second one, so different results, they mean the same but it should be rectified, and this can happen probably for indian languages with same script, so their might be two different puny codes. But, nice error found.
