=> Is there any other way to position the cursor at the desired
I don't know if this works on all terminals,
but it works on all my terminal emulators :
Where $ROW is the row number you want to put the cursor,
and $COL is the column number.

The "\033" thing will work if your terminal supports ANSI. I would suggest
you to man the tput command. This way cursor position commands
match what is correct for your terminal type.
