Abstract: Several new questions of quantitatively estimating physical conditions on astronomical bodies had opened up after formulation of Saha Ionization Equation. The article first reviews the step by step progress in the establishment of a stellar temperature scale. The second point reviewed is the efforts by many groups for determining elemental abundances and finding the solution to the Hydrogen problem. Finally some current efforts to read the magnetic field characteristics from polarization profiles of Zeeman affected spectral lines have been described.
