wladmin -s -H ;cd /home/stage/doamins/cw_stage1 '
 after executing now i am in wladmin user,

       [wladmin at cwsapp02 gyan]$ pwd

    but cd /home/stage/doamins/cw_stage1 'is not working

          It is very diffcult to take backup for logfile.Taking backup

You need to tell ssh to allocate a pty for the command.  E.g.

    ssh -tt gkuma14 at cwr.uuu.com 'sudo -u wladmin -s -H'

That should do the trick.
