Hello Aritro,
Good to hear from you man. And why are you "desperate to get into a good school", when you can simply get into one :)
Your numbers are good, GMAT grades, even though you are a "non-IIT" fella. You do have some good extra-curricular, but I would say that they are about what we could expect form a profile such as yours (thankfully you have that excellent GMAT)

Now, given your background the trick for you is to a) stick out and show that you are different b) have amazing essays. Cause the schools WILL see lots of similar profile. And the key to starting is in selecting your schools well. You want to select schools that fit YOU and YOUR needs rather than just aimlessly aiming for anything with a good ranking.

What schools were you thinking about?

Thanks guys for the evaluation.....In the interim, I was getting a bit itchy and so prepared another profile (a bit fleshier)..........

Find it at profil-eval-pls-750-latest-660-in-gmat-6-yrs-in-it-119039.html

And I was thinking ISB and HKUST (perhaps)......Also a couple of Asian schools......what do you suggest, please??

Well go for both! HKUST is the number one ranked (according to FT) B-school in Asia, and plenty of super famous CEOS have come from ISB, so if either can match your goals, why not?
