So I googled up a solution to a previously existing problem which required me to long press SHIFT button during start up. It turned the grub menu like this..
Image of my Grub menu now

Before everything happened it used to look somewhat like this
(Except that there was Windows 10 instead of Windows 7)

This is how my Grub file looks(Click)

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
.#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
.#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
.#GRUB_BADRAM="0x01234567,0xfefefefe,0x89abcdef,0xefefefef"
GRUB_TERMINAL=console
GRUB_GFXMODE=640X480
.#GRUB_DISABLE_LINUX_UUID=true
.#GRUB_DISABLE_RECOVERY="true"
.#GRUB_INIT_TUNE="480 440 1"

It gives an Error before boot saying error: no video mode activated like this
Although It works Normally..It is Irritating .. How do i fix the Error and get the Purple Grub menu back? :/ Thanks in Advance :)

Edit: Thanks to Pratap the both the problems are now solved.

Hi, Regarding the Error i am working on it. Meanwhile can you add # before GRUB_TERMINAL=console and before GRUB_GFXMODE=640X480. After adding # symbols , save the file & close. open terminal and sudo update-grub once updated. close the terminal and reboot the system to see the change.

  • Thanks a lot! That Solved all the problems i had including The ERROR part... I think the error thing was also related to it :) Thanks again – Vrushank V Jun 6 '18 at 16:08

Add # before GRUB_TERMINAL=console and before GRUB_GFXMODE=640X480.
After adding # symbols , save the file & close.

Open Terminal and run sudo update-grub.
Once updated, close the terminal and reboot the system to see the change.
