Firdos e Moonda with Andrew Fidel Fernando, in ESPNcricinfo, 27 March 2017 where the title is “The making of a Kiwi”
One of the first things Jeet Raval from Ahmedabad did when he arrived in Auckland was try to find a job. He was only 16 years old, so it had to be a casual, holiday gig, but his father Ashok encouraged it as a way for him to interact with people in his new home and improve his limited English. “I went to Subway and they asked me if I could hand in my CV. I didn’t know what a CV was, so I called my mom and asked, ‘What’s a CV?’ In India they call it biodata, so my mom told me that and then I understood. I asked for a piece of paper and a pen and they didn’t have any paper, so they gave me a tissue paper. I wrote the word ‘biodata’ on the top and I put my name, my mom’s name, my dad’s name, my date of birth, and I said there’s my CV. And I never heard back from them,” Raval said to ESPNcricinfo during his first series as a Test cricketer in November last year.
