Of course.

  If yes how do i proceed in that front too ?

One of the best ways to be a ambassador for a project is to have a high 
level overview of the history (important milestones atleast) and changes 
happening within the project. This includes new features in upcoming 
releases, governance, issues the community is facing, plans to address 
those issues etc. Read the relevant lists or atleast the announcements 
lists and the weekly news reports.

While you don't necessarily need to have a keen understanding of every 
single aspect of the community, having a general idea is important. 
Being aware of the general steps involved in joining a sub project or at 
least being aware of the sub project leaders can be quite useful.  It is 
easier to mentor someone else if you are actively doing it yourself.

Most importantly, ask questions. If you are comfortable asking it here, 
that would be just fine. We usually have folks hanging around in 
#fedora-mktg and  #fedora-india IRC channels in freenode for casual 
conversations too.
