hi Sharankumar Desai

you can use bootstrape in your component as static resource like that-: 
<ltng:require styles="{! $Resource.Bootstrap337update + '/Bootstrap337update~/bootstrap-3.3.7-dist/css/bootstrap.min.css'}" 
                     $Resource.jquery224 + '/bootstrapejq/jquery-2.2.4.min.js', 
                     $Resource.Bootstrap337update + '/Bootstrap337update~/bootstrap-3.3.7-dist/js/bootstrap.min.js')
for download bootstrape go to http://blog.getbootstrap.com/2016/07/25/bootstrap-3-3-7-released/

its look like User-added image
<form role="form">
           <div class="input-group">
               <span class="input-group-addon">
                 <i class="glyphicon glyphicon-search"></i>
               <input type="text" id="ContactsearchBar" class="form-control" value="{! v.ContactsearchKeyWord}" onkeyup="{! c.searchContact}" placeholder="Search Contact" />    

thanks :)
