Add the "ptree $$" command in your script before the "declare" command and post its whole output.

You are launching your script the wrong way.
Instead of running "sh ara.sh", change the script to be executable:
chmod +x ara.sh

Then, you'll be able to run it like a regular program

You should also probably rename it to ara.bash as it is a bash script.

Alternatively, you can just launch the proper interpreter:
bash ara.sh
