(SOLVED) finally i solved the puzzle,

To get the paddle back to its initial position i just need to counter gravity by applying force to that paddle in opposite direction of gravity like this: body.ApplyForce(body.GetMass()*-world.GetGravity(), body.GetWorldCenter());  need to apply this force every frame.


This article here helped me:
