why variables inside interface are static while methods are not?

because interface methods are abstract and you can't use static+abstract on a method.
Or you can say since static methods can't be overridden you must override a method in interface so you can't use static with interface methods.

You can't make an object from java interface. Therefore, if the variable are not static, you can never refer them..!

You can't over-ride static methods. That's why we can't write 'static' abstract methods. Methods in an interface are implicitly abstract..
