Hey Prannnoy ,
+1 it would be super awesome to work on these bindings.

A good place to start would be perhaps reading up the code , getting the
whole thing setup in developer mode (the latest stable release would be
great else nothing like git head, post 4.0 release this should be fairly
simple ) Tryy fireing up the utilities and see what works. See if you can
look at the source, if you wish to dig deeper, you could look into the
