Aapka swaagat hai


Explanation:
Well, 'welcome' or 'you're welcome' would be translated as 'aapka swaagat hai' but it is never used in Hindi/Gujarati as a reply to 'Thanks'. You don't really wish a friend 'welcome' in that kind of way in either Hindi or Gujarati.

This is a matter which deals with cultural difference.

If someone says 'Thanks' or 'Dhanyavaad', then you just smile or make a similar gesture or utter speak some phrase akin to 'it's all right'.

If there are further queries, let me know,
Regards
Roomy
