vim71: Problem of "syntax highlighting" solved

I don't know how this problem started. I am using vim for quite sometime and everything was working fine - I was able to see syntax highlighting for my C code and searches were also highlighted. But, for past few weeks, I wasn't able to see colors! I was running vim70 and thought that the problem will go away after updating to vim71. But, still the problem persisted. After lot of trials and errors, I was able to correct it.
