Tools accessing my first element of array

Hello everyonel,
I have an array set like so
num=4
read name
arr[$num]=name
I go through while loop to assign different values to different array element from 1 to 4. when I try to access the FIRST element of the array I get the last one first. Like if I say ${arr[1]} it will show the last element of the array that I populated last. I do not know how to reset the pointer so when I say ${arr[1]} it will show me the very first element.


Appreciate your help.
