Thanks for sharing your profile. Let's break it down:

Academics: Average. You're in good shape on this dimension -- not stellar but definitely middle of the pack.

Professional background: Indian Male Engineer. It's a tough demographic to break out of, but I think you'll stand out as your industry and specialization are somewhat unique. Further, looks like you've had decent exposure to the business side of things, so that should play to your favor.

Extracurrcular/Community activities: I don't see anything in here that is really exceptional, though it's great that you were so active in college. You want to be able to demonstrate that same gusto post-college, but luckily for you, college wasn't that long ago, so you can still fall back on those activities to some degree.

I think NUS and AGSM makes sense as targets. ISB may be a bit of a reach. There are some programs in China that you might consider as well if that region is of interest to you.

All the best,

Mili Mittal
