thank you for your response.

I have tried to write in headers_out struture also but did not able to read
the my written value so tried with headers_in

>>The example code I see treats is as a ngx_http_header_t*.
i have tried to change return type to ngx_http_header_t but still same

If i am writing in headers_out "Set-Cookie" value "somevalue" then same
value reflecting response header tab while viewing through developer option
in mozilla
and request header "cookie" value "somevalue".
So  what is the possible way to read this  "cookie" value that is
i tried to read many way like using
ngx_http_parse_multi_header_lines(),ngx_hash_find() but still not able to
get correct value .
Below is snapshot of Response and Request header
