Did it will affect my career growth ??

Definitely, in a positive way. Since this is a different type of application, you get to be exposed to a new challenge. However, depending on what you want to master, this might have some drawbacks as Web apps and Windows apps(services) are different in terms of how they are being created. But the bottomline is, its still better to be familiar of the other types of applications. The more your skills, the more that companies are going to want to hire you.

Well, I'm not aware that the demand for windows based services has gone low. But as for windows apps, I believe these are still in demand. Many MNCs still use their old windows apps because for them, migrating to a different app would cost them a lot. Last year, my team had this windows application project for a telecommunication company. It was mainly used for reporting purposes.

Why do you think in general that your carrier is compromised if you're not going with all the crowd? This idea is strange. Imagine the opposite case: you can do something which almost nobody can do. Will it help? Sure, you can work in the company which is hard to find, but that company might value you high. A combination of many skills (but really good skills) it the best.

I don't think so indeed it will help you to know about window services and you will gain knowledge in windows applications too. :)

Ok, Thank you. Is it become an additional qualification?

"Additional" is just a word which does not mean much. You approach to carrier looks weird. It feels like you're afraid of something.
