Your question can probably be best answered by the airline you're flying into BKK. If you're able to check through to HK and stay airside without clearing customs and immigration you'll be fine. Otherwise you'll need to get a Thai visa-on-arrival as applies to Indian nationals for the equivalent of 1000 Thai Baht. It really depends on the two(?) airlines, if they have a "fly-through" arrangement.
