Terminal prompt goes away

I am using linux for last 1 year and I am end user.
Previously in my cshrc I used to set my prompt like,

set prompt="\n%{\033[31m%]%B[%n@%m:%/]\n$% %b{\033[0m%]"
This sets my prompt in red color like this,


Now I have copied some .cshrc file and I have copied above prompt to new .cshrc.

The problem I am facing is, it shows me the CWD in red color but when ever I change my dir. the prompt goes away and normal prompt comes in.

Please tell me what is wrong in my .chsrc

Thanks and regards,

Type "echo $PS1", change the directory and type it again, and post the result. See if it is different.
