@joker101 While presenting yourself in front of a board, impact should not show you need Harvard, but Harvard needs you. As Neo mentioned just emphasize on best achievements of all. While mentioning your achievements be moderate appealing (not more not less). Be confident you can achieve it...
yes,very true. 'Harvard needs you than you need Harvard' is the yardstick i agree with. true.

please have a look at mine's too-
working in oriental insurance
nine years academic gap between my intermediate and enrolling for undergraduate
studied at Bora-chchap school
did my undergrad from St. xavir's college,Ranchi
worked for while as a journalist at Hindustan times,Ranchi
so no 'achievement'
want to go to Harvrd because of the 'crowd' there and the 'global culture' that begins there
have no time to study as my boss wants me in at ten in the morning and i am out only at seven in the evening
working from jhadu pochcha to underwriting/approval/....no big deal here
i know i will be applying for Harvard this coming October come what may..
and they will select me
so please suggest me which study material to begin with, please.
thank you all.

@joker101 Not patronizing you. Meh is to being Literary club president at MGIT. It's not a big deal because the club itself has no value outside of MGIT. You need to understand/remember that you will be competing against a thousand students for 1 out of 100 seats.(http://www.hbs.edu/mba/admissions/admission-requirements/Pages/class-of-2015-profile.aspx) some of whom will be Harvard undergrads themselves (http://www.thecrimson.com/article/2012/9/6/harvard-seniors-admitted-to-HBS/)

Once you realise that, then you need to re-evaluate your achievements and pick and choose only the best - the ones that are really worth talking about - which show all kinds of amazing things about you - the brown belt can show focus, determination and discipline - the NGO work can show compassion and humanity, the start-up can show risk-taking, the desire to make a difference and actually doing something about it etc.

eventually, you are applying to a b-school so you need to align your presentation along those lines.

@Neo2000 hello neo! NGC is the national green corps,govt setup similar to the NSS except that they involve only in environmental related activities like plantations and climate change related awareness.PEAS club is a club which educated high school kids like me about environmental related issues and the detrimental effects of non segregation of waste etc.
and i agree,being a president of a few clubs, founding a few more ,heading societies,running the unique Hyderabad youth assembly isnt the perfect picture.
my main goal is to make sure that all the kids in these orphanages,kids going to government schools have the facilities they need to provide themselves better education,if i do get admittance into the harvard ,i shall meet people with more experience than i do and people who would improvise my goals in betterment of life for those under privileged kids,i want to spread it all through the third world countires,giving them food and shellter is temporary relief,give them education they can fend for themselves.for that i need dedicated minds and alot of finance and backup.my blue prints are all ready for my dreams to materialise,i just laxk the funding.
no need to patronize me,your 'meh' reference isnt very nice,please dont do that.the quid pro quo was a courtesy,i dont mean any offense.
by the way,which school do you go too?
the scientist's name is 'viplava kumar',He has done his bachelors at the IIT and phd in russia,worked there as a scientist for 7 years and was a 'E' grade scientist at the DRDO banglore,'F' grade is the highest level.he has published books with foreign authors from eminent univs abroad.you may be wondering why such a man is stationed in my mediocre college,well its because sometimes people have to retire and need a break,he is pretty famous alright,no need t worry.

i am expecting my startup to make atleast 20k INR a month.

we fall so that we can learn to pick ourselves up
