You have a very strong profile, without any apparent weaknesses. Typically I would advise you to take on a couple of safety school applications since the Indian application pool is a deep one, but this year, applications are down and therefore opportunities are more easily secured than usual. You might consider an additional school or two a bit lower in the top 15 to be sure, but I feel based on your profile, you should have a good shot at one or more of your target schools as long as you can articulate a compelling vision for how you will leverage your achievements to attain your post MBA vision.
