OK. I will give it a shot.

Same as previous one except that "Hardik shubkamnayein" means "Sincere wishes".

Abhi
First sentence is same has what Ishan wrote. The second sentence means "I pray that that you find a lot of happiness in India"

The jist of this is "Wish you a very long life". Translated literally, this means that "wish you live thousands of years where each year has 50 thousand days"

This is identical to what Steer said except that this one is in Punjabi.

actually, phulo is not swell but collectively it means bear fruit and flower as somebody else mentioned.

eventually it does mean what you said, wishing a bride to procreate.

Thanks for all the explanations and translations! Now everything made perfect sense

A wonderful day has come to an end, though actually in Germany my birthday is not yet over. But Sam heavily objected to my idea of stretching my birthday to 28 1/2 hours, beginning it at Indian time and ending it at German time lol. What a shame! I thought this was quite cool.

Anyways, thanks again for all the wishes. I enjoyed reading them and they made me feel even more welcome here.

Good night everyone!

thanks for clarifying. So phalo stems from phal (fruit) and phulo from phul (flower) !! Infact I actually was wondering that swell (would be a crass and blatant word to use

Hyderabadis had butchered Hindi a couple of centuries ago. Here the phrase phulo is often used to denote swelling
