I think what Sreedhar is asking for is the capability to form a "join" across multiple indices
- and if so, I could sure use that capability myself.  However, I think Lucene's logic focuses
only on a single query, so I doubt if that's easily done.

  Hello Sreedhar,

  This is the expected behaviour.  The query is run against each index,
  and it won't have any matches in either index, because neither index
  has both fields.
