    1) Don't limit yourself to just Harvard, it's very difficult to get into a school like that especially for an international student, look around at other schools. You sound like you're at the start of your academic career so focus first on succeeding at your current courses instead of getting into a top tier grad school.

    2) I'm no expert on Indian schools but I have heard good things about IIT Madras. If you want to have any chance at getting into Harvard I suggest you get out of your technological university and transfer to one of the top universities there.
