That is an impressive profile. You do stand a chance. Show them what you learnt from your international experience and how did you shape your career and why only in that direction. You are good to go. But keep in mind that many IITians do apply.

Hey,

You do have a great chance if you write your applications well. Energy sector people have one of the highest conversion rate. INSEAD value IITians as well as your domain people.

Thanks for sharing.

If you can improve on your GMAT score, that would help strengthen your chances as you come from a very competitive pool.

Also, you may want to share more recent extracurricular activities or current passions outside work to help show your personality.
