Port 22 is closed, either you changed the default port or the service is not running
I am not able to login now,via Digital ocean console. And time out exception via Putty. How I can open port?
Check if the sshd service is running an if you are not blocking the port 22 with a firewall

service sshd status
iptables -L
Sounds like you screwed up your droplet. I'd just destroy it and create it again.
thanks! Yes it is better to re-create droplet
