Hi Jayesh,

It is totally upto you to decide which OSGeo project to work. There are
plenty of opportunity in every project. Here are some pointers.

1. Start by checking out (not download) source from the project repository
2. build it own your own. There is always a howto build for every project.
3. Read the project documentation and try some tutorials
4. Try to write a simple hello osgeo project application using the API
5. Prepare an idea rather than a gsoc proposal( you should start working on
idea to proposal when gosc program gets announced) as early as possible

As you are from IIIT-H and was interested to work on OSGeo project you
should talk with prof. Rajan of LSI lab and other students in the lab
participated in GSoC in past years. There were participation since 2011
