Thanks for the kind words about the book!
I think that you have a pretty strong profile. What I especially like are your examples of showing initiative and taking on leadership roles. Examples from your work like (such as starting a factory) and your personal life (such as starting the United fan club) are all extremely valuable in showing that you have leadership qualities that will make you a valuable addition to a b-school's community. Be sure to REALLY emphasize these in your app. These are more important than your "stats," such as your GMAT score.
All of the other things that you mentioned are also interesting... the tutoring, the rock band, cricket, etc. They are all very valuable in setting you apart from other applicants, which as you probably know is very important since you will be up against a lot of other applicants coming from India.
I don't really see any holes, really. I do wonder about the stock trading thing... Were you just a day trader without a day job? That sounds a little questionable, but I don't know if that's the case.
Your list of schools looks fine, although I'd probably recommend applying to no more than six. If I had to knock two off of the list, I'd maybe pick Kelly and Babson, unless you have them there for a certain reason. I bet that you can get into at least one of those schools. Also, even though I just told you to knock two off of the list, also consider Kellogg. You sound like you could be an interesting addition to the class!
