Hi Pulkit,

You can also check in with any of the projects that interest you and I 
think you will find that most can give you some idea of potential GSoC 
Ideas for their projects.

For example pgRouting has:

Our experience through the years that students the pick projects that 
they are interested in or passionate about tend to learn more and have 
more fun working on them and are the most successful.

You are not constrained to pick an existing idea. If you have some ideas 
bounce them off the project lists and work with them to fine tune your 
ideas or come up with other ideas.

There is nothing better than working on a project that excites you.

Best Regards,
