Hi Kshitij

Contributing is very easy - find something that doest work as you thing it
should and make a fix for it and submit a pull request via github. I
suggest to do small tweaks and improvements while you get familiar with the
code and while the community gets used to working with you. There are also
many open tickets in out bug queue at http://hub.qgis.org - it would be
great if you can find some to resolve for us.

Have fun and welcome to the QGIS community!
