Hi Yukti,

Your message from october seems to have gone unanswered -- sorry about that. 
The general approach in KDE is that you don't need to ask for permission -- 
just do it. That means that it's also best to "scratch your own itch", which 
means fixing something in a program that you personally use. Many of us got 
started that way.

The KDE Community wiki has a getting-started / get-involved page:

This can help you figure out what kind of participation you want. For coding 
things, get a development environment set up (in whatever OS you like), clone 
some git repositories, and start building. That's not the easiest way to get 
started, but it's effective for starting code contributions.

There's in Delhi early in 2020, if you can travel and want to meet 
KDE people, that's a possibility.
