Ceiling fan

In summer, the fan's direction of rotation should be set so that air is blown downward (Usually counter-clockwise from beneath). The blades should lead with the upturned side as they spin.
but the motor rotates in clockwise direction.

Table fan

The fan's direction of rotation is Clockwise and the air is blown towards front,

here too the motor rotates in clockwise direction.

From your post , I understood that the direction of rotation of the blades between ceiling and table fan changes for the direction of flow of air. Is it right?

And you have stated that motor runs in the same direction, But how come the direction of blades are different. Can you explain me in detail please.

Since in ceiling fan the rotating part is stator (Body, the part without armature winding), but in the table fan the rotating part is rotor (the part with armature winding), so both fan's rotating direction is opposite.​

just look at a ceiling fan which has been installed on a wall(probably in cinema theatres) and you will see that the direction of rotation of its blades are similar to that of a table fan

Do you mean to say both are in same direction?

The fan mounted on wall will not be called ceiling fan. Only the fan which mounted on ceiling is called ceiling fan.
