Is there anyway we can share a login session between two apps one of which is developed in php and the other one in Ruby or Perl or Python?

Not with builtin you can't. Unless you can configure one language to use the same information location and same serialization technique.
Use a database driven session handling instead. More work, but completely under your control.

Alternatively create a php script that can interact with the session and output/accept the data. You'll need to specify the session id in the request headers though.

That way your other app/language can make a http call to interact with it. Bit sloppy if its on the same machine though but useful if its remote.
