> Currently Namenode does not provide support to do random reads. With so many tools built
on top of HDFS solving the use case of Exploratory BI and providing SQL over HDFS. The need
of hour is to reduce the number of blocks read for a Random read. 
> E.g. extracting say 10 lines worth of information out of 100GB files should be reading
only those block which can potentially have those 10 lines.
> This can be achieved by adding a tagging feature per block in name node, each block written
to HDFS will have tags associated to it stored in index.
> Namednode when access via the Indexing feature will use this index native to reduce the
no. of block returned to the client.
