Definition

Nope, not the Audio processing application...this one refers to the curious propensity for Indian automobiles to belt out some sort of tune (preferably based on a new Bollywood number or a devotional bhajan) anytime they are in the process of moving in reverse.
This strange ritual ostensibly warns pedestrians and others that the driver, who normally does not bother to follow road rules even when moving forward, will be even less willing to accommodate anyone/anything else on the road now that he/she is driving backwards completely blind
The real bleeding-edge drivers synch their mobile ringtones with their auto tunes thus creating a permanent trail of sonic annoyance as they move about in life

Usage

Revi - What engle, yuwryone has Chamak Challo or Sheila ki Jawani auto tune. You are having Om Jai Jagadisha Hare only?
Engle - Thatandalldontask Revi, I'm simbly asking ende guruvayoorappan to watch my behind
