dear friends, can I get a link to the original paper by Chandrashekhar where he derived the limit for white dwarf? also you can suggest me other good papers deriving the limit.

This article contains an extensive list of references for the work of Chandrasekhar and others on white dwarf stars:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chandrasekhar_limit

It's not clear which paper you are referring to, since Chandrasekhar published several papers at roughly the same time in different journals. Perhaps his Nobel Prize lecture clears up which paper is first.

Chandrashekhar paper on white dwarf

that paper on white dwarf seems pretty informative and it will need me few days to re derive the equations, thanks a lot for the link, i will come back with other questions soon.
regards
