Why did you become a writer?

It came to my mind around the time I was studying in fifth standard,I remember,I was with my father in Kumbh Mela,a grand festival celebrated every sixth and twelvth year at Allahabad of Uttar Pradesh,India,where during our conversations he asked what I would like to be in my life,I replied "I would write books".As usual,his suggestion came promptly, "people read less and write more, it is better you study seriously first and become capable of viewing things from independent point of view, without some glass and then start writing". I was, however,able to understand the real meaning  of his suggestion years later and by that time he was no more.
