Hmmmmm, as you rightly pointed out, your work experience is gonna be the tough point. I have seen Indian candidates make a case for getting their three years counted (as it is full time work) but lots of times schools don;t really go for that. And the problem is that with only one year experience, this really drastically reduces your chances at schools. Which begs the question whether it might not be worth it to wait. It only begs the question though, and you may have a plethora of excellent reasons. But, likely, if you were to apply say with the same profile but three or four years WE, you would likely get into much better programs, so it IS something to consider.
