Please rephrase the question a little bit in terms of, if user enters sathish, what should happen?

If you are looking for case-insensitive search, then by simply converting the query text and the text to be searched, you can get the desired results

If you senter some value for search means then that word will goto  DB to search the word present or not .
They(user) have some search condition .
that condition is a,e,i,o,u this letter present in ur search word means  you have change that in to  Caps(that particular word only) and pass both words ,
if it not not match means send same word

if the user enter sathishe means
 
passing parameter is sathishe,sAthishE (here a,e is there in condition so covert to caps and we pass both)
 if the user enter nsk means
 
passing parameter is nsk
 
I think you understand my condition

You can have the user to select their search is case sensitive or case insensitive. if its case sensitive, then its enough to maintain only one hashmap. user's input and your storage should follow the same syntax i.e no formatting is needed at all. Likewise you need to maintain case insensitive hashmap where store the keys with either lowercase or uppercase after formatting the raw input. Same transformation has to be made when the user is giving the input. i.e either it has to be changed to lowercase or uppercase.

some what like this code ....
HashMap specialChar= new HashMap();
		String s1="";
		String s2="";
		for(int i=0;i<s.length();i++)
		{
			
			
			boolean e=specialChar.containsKey( Character.toString(s.charAt(i)));
			
			if(e==true)
			{
				String g =(specialChar.get(Character.toString(s.charAt(i)))).toString();
				
				String[] sp=g.split(",");
				s1=s1+sp[0];
				s2=s2+sp[1];
			
			}
			if(e==false)
			{
				s1=s1+Character.toString(s.charAt(i));
				s2=s2+Character.toString(s.charAt(i));
			}
		
		}
		  System.out.println(s);
		  System.out.println(s1);
		  System.out.println(s2);
		  
		return s1+","+s2;
