Hello Jatin,
if you prefer to play more with something specific before figuring out, 
as per Damjan's suggestion, something you wish to work on, you could 
start with a 4.1.2 bug that is currently being discussed.

Apparently Base on Mac OS X (only on Mac OS X) has a bug that makes it 
impossible to create a table in design mode. It will help if you have 
available 4.1.1 (where this works), 4.1.2 (where this is reported to be 
broken) and your own build. You should confirm the bug on 4.1.2 and on 
your own (trunk) build. Then you can try reverting and checking whether 
this fixes the problem. The relevant Bugzilla issue is but it's highly 
recommended to read too.

This would be a very nice way to start.

Then, as Damjan wrote, you should tell us your preferences, at least the 
modules you use more often. One medium-size project related to Impress 
could be this one but 
this depends on your interests.
