Definition

Until air-conditioned cars were introduced to Indian roads, the people who drove, usually stuck their hand out of the window when they were about to turn right & twirled their hand from the elbow for a left turn. In the absence of indicator lights, this was useful to the dudes on vehicles behind.
But with the advent of air-conditioned cars, the glass on windows had be up always, hence this sign was printed at the back of the cars to warn the dudes behind them.
But after zillions of years, some people still have it on their cars. A status symbol, maybe?!
