nawk and line number

I am using the following "nawk" statement to get 22 lines after the pattern I have specified as an argument:
$ NUM=3461
$ nawk -v a=$NUM '$0 ~ ("\\[" a "\\]") {c=22}c&&c--' myfile

The "nawk" statement works fine.
But I also need to get line numbers as a part of the output.
Is there a way to modify the above "nawk " call so it would output the actual line numbers as well?

Thanks a lot
