That's way Drupal has several layers of caching, the biggest advantage of a database is that's easy to move your site or for heavy visited sites you can use several front-end web servers to serve page. Amongst many other benefits of using a database (multi-user, stable, easy to backup, ...)

Regarding the speed, a good database running on a decent server is as fast as file I/O

i just wanted to know why drupal is saving all the page content in database .. if we have many pages then it may slow down the database and also page loading.

What you want to do is possible, have a look at hook_menu, this defines the path for your page, but I don't really understand what's your objection to saving your data in the database. What is it you want to achieve?
