These schools you are targeting get a ton of applicants from India, and frankly your profile is going to come across sounding like the average applicant. What you have left out of your profile is your leadership experience, which is very important to these schools as well as your post MBA vision, which will be critical to communicate in a mature way, particularly since you will be applying with below the average number of years work experience. Not saying you can't get attention, just bringing to mind that you will need to really assess why you think you deserve a seat more than the next applicant who may even have more impressive qualifications. HBS in particular does not discriminate against younger applicants, but you will need to have a very convincing case for how your experience will be valuable and accretive to the experience of your classmates.
