Akshit — you should start by reading the HACKING document  so you know how to build Xapian from source and have an idea about how things fit together. Then we have a "help wanted" page on the wiki  which suggests ways to get involved, particularly some project ideas  which include both bite sized things that are good for getting started and more sizable pieces once you're comfortable.
