Business schools look for several key attributes in every applicant including leadership, creativity, maturity and teamwork. Sounds like you are still ramping up in your career, so with a couple of years WE ahead of you, I'd try to seek out opportunities to lead, innovate, and work in teams. You have a unique opportunity now to "reverse engineer" your b-school application, so you are wise to be thinking now what you want to have experienced two years from now when you apply. As an Indian applicant, you will be uniquely challenged by applying from a very crowded applicant pool, so one way I have seen Indian applicants distinguish themselves is working internationally. Especially given all your language skills, you could have a real interesting play with international experience if you play your cards right over the next couple of years. Realizing that the "typical" Indian applicant comes from a technical or engineering background and submits a 700+ GMAT score, you need to be working on how to differentiate yourself from the proverbial crowd. CFA is good for example, as this is not a typical achievement.
