You know what - when my mom used to teach me how to draw birds, she used to say, just draw it like an 'r' with a long tail....

When i first learnt cursive writing, 'r' was one of the worstly written letters.A simple way was taught to write 'r', which is something like this.
Like the inverted 'pa' in tamil, with a small round beak and feathers at its end..
