Subject Re: concept to query cassandra

It was just an example to showcase how i want to implement it, and I have
even added that this entierly depends upon what you want and what the
scenario is, i'm thinking of using this for articles that we are storing,
and the number is big. thinking of making each values as column name itself.

Once I am done with its intial designing I'll share with you guys. If at any
moment i feel that it won't work, will update in that case also.
