Thanks a lot. It solved the issue partially. I could enable the python
scripting in GDB. But still the STL containers are not printing data.
It worked straight in debian. The following log (Cygwin) explains

(gdb) python print 10
                                                        >>>Python is
(gdb) print myList
$1 = {<_List_base<int, std::allocator<int> >> = {
    _M_impl = {<allocator<std::_List_node<int> >> = {<new_allocator<std::_List_n
ode<int> >> = {<No data fields>}, <No data fields>}, _M_node = {
        _M_next = 0x681838, _M_prev = 0x6818c8}}}, <No data fields>}
                         >>>libstdc++ printer is not used
(gdb) python print myList
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
NameError: name 'myList' is not defined
Error while executing Python code.
                                       >>>I will ask in archer list.

But I dont know whether it has some thing to do with Cygwin. I will
ask in archer mailing list too. Mean while if anyone has some clue,
please share.
