What is going on with all the men wandering around with hands down their pants? I know that the sense of privacy is different in India, but is this normal? Or is something inappropriate going on?

I realized there is a hole in my pocket!

But why are you concerned about hands in pants anyway, even if its 'inappropriate'?

Exactly - a hand down a pant is one fewer on a groping expedition!

These men were never part of the National Cadet Corps. No drill sergeant has ever shouted "Hands out your pockets!" at them.

I thought visitors to India used to wonder about men walking around hand in hand in pairs. It may be the case that ever since the Supreme Court upheld Art. 377 of the Indian Penal Code and the BJP came into office they have started keeping their hands tucked away.

Men with hands in their pockets is commonly observed in India. You would normally find them doing it when their hands are free (not carrying a briefcase, phone, newspaper etc). Normally when they are waiting for somebody or standing in queue it happens.

Maybe they are secretly excercise for the next "Rock-Paper-Scissors" championship
Surely there comes a time when counting the cost and paying the price aren't things to think about any more. All that matters is value - the ultimate value of what one does.

May be they just got worried when they saw you staring at their pockets.

OP may have confused "hands" and "pants" while typing the title of the thread. What she (he?) saw were men carrying pants in their hands. They must have been delivery men working for dry-cleaners.
