but getting this error:

ERROR MESSAGE: Fasta index file /home/bio1/Desktop/Shivangi/BOWTIE/bowtie2-2.2.3/example/reference/lambda_virus.fa.fai.fai for reference /home/bio1/Desktop/Shivangi/BOWTIE/bowtie2-2.2.3/example/reference/lambda_virus.fa.fai does not exist. Please see for help creating it.

please let me know, these command line arguments are okay?

Firstly, the command you posted wouldn't create that error message (you have a typo). Secondly, I suspect that you used -R lambda_virus.fa.fai rather than -R lambda_virus.fa, since that would indeed cause that error. Try running the command again like that and see if the error still occurs (if so, just copy and paste the exact command you used into a new comment).
