Hi srijit92, Welcome to LQ. Have you tried to manually bring the interface up?
# ifup wlan0
# ifup eth0
Good luck. ;-)
Yes. After couple of restarts and changing CMOS battery, my wlan0 interface powered up.
But facing a new problem now. With my wired connection enabled (eth0) and static ip and gateway assigned, i can successfully browse net. But after I disconnect the wire, the wlan0 gets IP from router by DHCP and I can also ping the router. But I cannot ping the Internet like 22.214.171.124 etc. How to resolve this issue?

Have you tried DHCP with the wired connection, if so, how does that work? I'm guessing your route, default gateway, and/or /etc/resolv.conf (possibly all three) aren't being updated properly when you switch connections.
While you're up on the wireless please issue and report the following:
