I have to write a manifest for a lab resource. Howeever, I am a bit confused like from where to start. It would be great if there is any manifest skeleton or dummy manifest along with documentation which can be taken as a reference to create a manifest.

The best resource for getting started would be the puppet labs learning vm. You can follow along some exercises that will show you the basics of getting started.

Once you have created some simple manifests and are ready to graduate from monolithic design to parameterized classes, I highly recommend that you take a look at Example42's modules. They even have a boilerplate template with excellent documentation.

Puppet includes a function to generate a skeleton of a new module.

If you'd like something more visual with a ton more features check out Gepetto. It's a full blown IDE for Puppet and included functions for making a module skeleton as well.
