Rupee parity

India's new symbol.

Wikipedia has it, but it will not copy and paste in this post.Drawing it on paper is a four stroke action, so the Euro is more efficient with three. It doesn't resemble much of an R when it is handwritten - at least not by me - it really needs the downstroke to make it easily recognisable as an R, but it looks like an R in a standard typeface (as in the Wiki image). It saves people writing it in real life the hassle of an extra (fifth) stroke however so it has that going for it and it resembles the previous hindi-looking script without having to be more elaborate than necessary - so it's not a bad effort by D Udaya Kumar of Chennai.

Very elegant.

An for very small design cost of $5000. NZ's various city logo designers, and corporate image redesign conmen please note.

Outsourcing is soon coming to you who take one 'idea du jour' and just keep modifying it slightly while billing obsence amounts viz The New Dowse, Telecom etc.

I don't think it is supposed to look like an "R". I think it is supposed to look like a Hindi "ra" symbol.

Also, I can do it in three strokes in that I touch pen to paper only three times.
