You've got a solid GMAT for your demographic (Indian males tend to have very high GMATs but yours is in range) and some unique work experience that will make you a non-traditional candidate. Most Indian males are coming from an engineering or IT background so the fact that you are not will help you stand out. That said, you will need to be MUCH more specific about your post-MBA goals since your whole argument for why you need an MBA hinges on those. "General management" could mean a lot of different things. The adcom is going to want to know exactly what title you want in the ST (upon graduation) and LT (~10 years post-graduation), what your target firms are, and what you hope to accomplish in those goals/the impact you aspire to have. AND they are going to want to know WHY this is your passion.

All of that said, based on what you shared here it's tough to say for sure what your chances are at any particular school since the goals and why MBA argument are so crucial, but the good news is you've got the GMAT & you're not the typical Indian male candidate so you're starting off in a good place. :)
