Hello Devashishmishra

You have a decent profile for the one year program at IIMs.
Entrepreneurial experience and international exposure definitely helps.
Some of your achievements look solid too. Hence, fodder for essays.
To further stand out, do mention extracurricular too. You can read here to know what are the factors you should be focusing on in your application.
Lastly, I don't see a mention of your career goals and the motivation to pursue an MBA, especially with your experience. This is the most vital part of an application. You may want to add to your research by reading here.
To conclude- decent shot if you package your essay/LOR well.

Best
