OSGeo is a Foundation, as such there are lots of projects to look at. Perhaps one of them strikes your interest?

If you are unsure where to start I recommend volunteering on the OSGeo Live DVD project (http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc) which is a good introduction to what is available.

Finally OSGeo does have individual "chapters" in each region - including one in your area (http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/India). I recommend having a look at their activities, and introducing yourself on their mailing list.

All the best!

As a summer trainee under Defense Research and Development Organization, Ministry of Defense, India; I worked on a project titled "Development of PostgreSQL to OpenMap interface for basic vector overlay".  
> OpenMap is an open source GIS Tool that enables us to work on various set of map data. In order to create overlays, OpenMap GIS provides the functionality to create basic set of overlays which include point, line, polyline, polygon, splines etc. I was assigned a task to establish a connection between OpenMap and PostgreSQL using JDBC, with the aim of storing the overlays drawn on any particular layer of OpenMap along with its user given unique name and attributes, which may be retrieved as and when required.
