Once there was a robber who looted travellers. One day, he tried to loot a traveller, but the traveller said, "I am Narada. Why do you commit the sin of robbing people ?" The robber replied, I have to support my family."
Narada said, "Go and ask your family if they share your loot. "The robber went and asked his father, "I bring money by robbing people, will you share my guilt? His father was furious and shouted, " Get lost, you robber !" His mother too was enraged and said, "Why should I? I never stole a thing in my life. " His wife said,"It is your duty to support me." When he returned to Narada, the sage said "Everybody is alone in this world. Worship God, it is he who stands by you always. " The robber prayed for many years. Then he heard a voice from heaven, "Your new name is Valmiki and you will write the story of Rama." Valmiki wrote the Ramayana.
