Hindi translation:to sleep in: sej; Shaiya; Palang; Bistar; Bichowna; Khat; Khatola. flower bed: kyari
Explanation:
If you could give a context, one can give a more specific answer because there are so many words for bed, which one is the most appropriate depends on the context. The following are only general examples:

'palang': a luxurious bed; e.g. a four poster
'bistar and 'bichowna': modest ones e.g. a mattress on the floor
'khat' and 'khatola': very modest ones such as those strung with thin coir fibre ropes or thick woven fabric tapes
'sej' is usually used in the romantic sense especially in songs and lyrics
'shaiya' is used more in old fashioned literature.

One more is: 'charpai': same catagory as the 'khat' and 'khatola': a modest bed which four wooden legs (char means four and pai is legs) and perhaps wooden slats or again strung with choir string or woven fabric tapes.

Taking on a peer's suggestion below, a nursery or child's bed could be 'palna' which is a cradle. A nursery bed for plants would be 'ropankyari'.

Also, these are meanings of the noun 'bed'. If you are seeking 'bed' as in a verb, that will have another set of words and phrases.

Sorry, a slight error in my examples above: a khat or khatola is more of a wooden bench or slatted bed than a strung one; the charpai is more the strung one.
