in the solar system many celestial bodies are there , so for e.g. the weight of earth is very heavy as millions and trillions people live on it so without any base how does the earth remains on it's position and if it flies then how does such heavy object can fly ?

Dear Student,

The thing keeping the earth in its orbit is the gravitational pull of the sun on the earth. This is the same reason that all of the other planets stay in their orbit around the sun too. The planets orbit the sun because the sun is the heavier object and so it exerts the pull of gravity on the planets and not the other way around.
