You got voting right to choose prime minister and chief ministers, why can’t you choose your career! So stop blaming your parents for your failure. If you cannot convince your parents, then
How will you convince your demanding customers?
How will you convince your unforgiving investors?
How will you convince someone to work for you with no salary?

Everything has an expiry date including this blame game. So you better stop this shit!!
