Congrats Allan Lewis its just begining and there are many awards coming your way. Your Thonse roots are strong I suppose all Naik families they initially migrated from Botwar near Ruzar lewis house. They are great estate owners of Thonse Honnappa Kudru all the region of Kallinpur prospered during the time of Rani Abbakka due to the coconut farms. I believe agriculture is more important and buffaloes contributed their natural endowment in the history of mankind for land tilling and ploughing. Now the times have changed so are people agriculture is abandoned by many. future will be less food available so is the fish due to juvenile fishing and over fishing.
