    Hi Twinkle,
    As very rightly said by Gautam Joshi, there is a difference in being passionate and in knowing the skill well. In case you have strong hold on your writing skills and you are sure to make a successful career out of it then only you should take the risk to go against your parents' wishes and try to convince them about it but if you have even 1 % of doubt then suggestion would be that you should go with what your parents are advising you.
    Hope this resolves your query. Feel free to put up more queries In case your query is resolved please close this question by choosing it as a “best answer” or pressing the “thumbs up”

    Hi Twinkle,Let me give a very clear and honest reply, it is very good that you're passionate about writing arena, but the thing that matters is BEING PASSIONATE and BEING GOOD are two different things and situations. If you fulfill both criterion i.e. you're not only passionate about it but you're also GOOD at it then opting for any other field is foolishness. And also if you're good at it, then try to convince your parents and tell them that you can do miracles here also.
    But if you're not good at it then I think you should think twice and think upon what your parents say and suggest you.
    I hope it resolves your query. If yes, you can
