Hi Naveen.

We don't have particular projects that we can assign to you or anyone. The
best way to get into the open source is downloading the code and compile
it, find a bug that bothers you try to fix it and send a patch. Then repeat
adding "look on the bug tracker for bugs" in the loop. =P

You can always join #pidgin to ask questions or send them here and you will
get answers.
