usage of right as an adjective
"Right since my school days, I had a passion for building anything that is cool"
Is this usage of right correct?
Sanjay is correct that ever since is the correct form. I have heard the expression right since to mean ever since before, but it is unusual, and very casual. I cannot find that meaning of the adverb right in the usual online dictionaries I consult.
In casual spoken English contexts, right since would be okay; in formal contexts, however, ever since is more appropriate.
There is a grammatical error in your sentence; with right since/ever since you need the Present Perfect tense. Ever since my school days, I've had a passion for building anything that is cool.
I hope this helps.
