Check your PATH setting: is "." part of the search path?

Read the bash manual: 

.bashrc is only loaded by non-interactive shells. Put the following at
the top of your .bash_profile:

  if [ -r $HOME/.bashrc ]
    source $HOME/.bashrc

And .bash_aliases is not an autoloaded file too, use the same
construct as above.
