    "Progressive" west, brut etc will find homosexuality in everything..... Won't be suprised if they declared two male elephants as gays coz they touched their trunks 😂

    I don't even touch my best friend for nothing.. Leave alone holding his hands. If he ever hold my hand đŸ€ŹđŸ€ŹđŸ€ŹOne punch and he is gone. I hate grown up man holding hands and walking around... I think they are .. (If you know.. You know) but i believe most Indian men are 👉👌

    I also noticed they come to other countries n do the same things...omg...we girls also don't hold hands this much. It gives a wrong impression to others. I've been asked by other races. I've seen nepalise n Pakistanis do this but lesser than indians. Y indian man likes to hold hands ..hmmm......y must they do that. Weirdo! A funny way of showing friendship....for me it's very awkward.and holding a girls hand is a big No in this country right?

    It happens across southern Asian nations In contrast it is taboo to hold hands with females.

    I saw this a lot the first time I came to India in 2010. When a woman in my tour group asked our tour guide if all the guys holding hands were gay he loudly and angrily exclaimed "NOBODY IS GAY IN INDIA!" Oddly enough, in the 11 years I've been travelling to India, I've never seen women walking around hand in hand.
