How does it look?

This letter starts out like ट with the line at the top, a little line that comes down, and the half circle of a loop to the left.  Then it loops around at the end, just like ढ but the end of the little loop the end goes through the big loop.  You are basically adding a tail to the loop of ढ.

How to type it?
