Its good to know your interest in OSS. But what is the area of your study? And how do you plan to contribute to the community? Do you want to get involved in programming applications? Can you write good software? There are lot of open source projects who need volunteers. You can join one of them and contribute as you can.

Sir my area of interest is operating systems...but i don't know how to get connected to community...I can code but never being into core coding project....I love to code,but dont know how to start with....To be quite frank...in my college people there is no environment of opensource community so have to do everything on my own....I would be quite thankful if you could just guide me for some small project under this community so i could learn how to contribute and understand the working and culture of the community......

All colleges, specially in India, will not give an environment to Open source. There are certain colleges those support OSS but not all. If you want to get involved in a project and want to contribute code, it will completely depend on your preference of language. Which languages do you know? Which of them do you prefer? Sourceforge is a good place to start off with. There are estnormous projects listed there which need contributions from volunteers. Go there and search. Find out which are the project which need contribution. If some project excites you, get the code for that and study. Find out if you can improve the code or remove bugs listed. Test it and file the bugs. Testing is also a means of contributing to the project. If you have an idea in your mind and do not see anything related to that in sourceforge, start your own project.
And if you own a computer or laptop, load linux on it and use it for day to day activities.
