You like it a great deal and you want to pursue it but you have to take the permission of your seniors. However, when you approach your senior that is the time when it all crumbles to dust because you cannot answer the questions which are being thrown at you? He asks you that if your project is compatible with the technology which is used by the team, or if your project is commercially viable. Also how it will affect the ongoing work of your team and the company. These are questions which will come to you and you will have to know what to answer or else you can say quit your great idea.
