Hitesh,

It will all depend on what your goal is for this endeavor. From a self interest perspective, probably the first step is put your hands on any spare PC and work through the Linux From Scratch cookbooks (http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/). This will give you a very intimate introduction of the entire process of how to build a linux system entirely by hand. This knowledge will be indispensable once you have found your core project to focus on.

Additionally, you may want to start looking at Raspberry Pi kits (single board computers) or other SBC platforms as well. Most will come with enough documentation to get you going in the right direction.

Good luck & have fun!
