Description: As a programmer you may have faced this problem of setting a cookie and the next page
still reading the older value of cookie , which is a never a desired case , this problem
becomes typical when a new user has logged in and then logs out and then relogs in with
out closing the browser , so the code below helps to solve the previous values of cookies
and setting new values for a given cookie name
