By creating indexes in a MongoDB collection, query performance is enhanced because they store the information in such a manner that traversing it becomes easier and efficient.

- direction : can be one or many directions, it has to be one of these directions- descending, ascending, hashed, geosphere, geohaystack, geo2d or text
