I don't know if I am correct, try this -
Code:
a=$a+1

should be

a=`expr $a + 1`

where you are initializing the variable 'a'? if it has no value assigned to it, how can you put expression over it?

Just check if you can initialize 'a' before while loop and instead of '$a=1' just use '$a'. Hope it solves your problem.
