In this article, Partha Bagchi, the Founder President of Stammering Cure Centre, writes at length about the actual problem he faced as a “stammerer” and the same problem that numerous others are facing as a result of their stammering problem.

There are many people who think that stammering itself is the problem or the cause of the problem in life. As a result, people who stammer also grow to believe that this misconception is true. But if one tries to look a little deeper, one is likely to find otherwise. At the surface, what one sees is stammering and starts to consider that it must be the problem. What lies in the mind of the stammerer is a “fruit-salad” of humiliation, dejection, discouragement, shame, guilt, embarrassment, depression, under-confidence, resentment, loneliness and envy accumulated continuously over the numerous years of life branded as a “stammerer”.

This “fruit salad” in essence is made with these stale, rotten “fruits” in the mind of the stammerer and has the same toxic effect when one tries to eat it. The mind consequently falls sick because it has been fed this decomposed “fruit salad” of negative thoughts and feelings day in and day out. When one’s mind is filled with the toxins and stench of negative thoughts, the person is bound to develop negative attitude towards self and others as well. This bitterness and pessimism becomes a chronic “condition” that the person has to live with.

When one has to live in this toxic state or mind, the person suffers from a quicksand-like struggle. The person unaware of quicksand or its consequence, steps on it unawares and keeps sinking deeper and deeper in this negativity. The more one struggles to get out of it, the deeper he/she sinks into the quicksand. As a result of this internal struggle, the person’s speech becomes a struggle with ever-increasing stammering as he/she goes deeper into the quicksand.

Stammering develops mostly from the early age of a person. It is an acquired behaviour not inherited. It is usually caused by multiple factors and their interactions.



Some of the causes that lead to the development of stammering are :

  • Childish imitation of other stammerers either in the family or outside.
  • An after effect of certain serious illness.
  • Feeling of insecurity in the early age.
  • Strict, rude & rough guardianship.
  • Sudden physical or mental shock.
  • Shy or introvert nature from childhood.
  • Very fast speaking habit.
  • Parental fights and misunderstandings.
  • Disturbances and quarrel in the family.
  • Fast thought process.
  • Lack of co-ordination between thinking & speaking.
  • Stiff competition in all spheres of life.
  • If one is bilingual or multilingual, confusion may occur to the child while speaking.
  • Side effects of strong medicinal action.
  • Subjected to tremendous fear and tension from childhood.
  • If the child is left alone for some time without parents or familiar people.
  • When a second child is born in the family.
  • Seeing horrifying scenes in real life or in movies.
  • If the child is weak or sickly.
  • When pressurised by parents to achieve difficult and high targets.
  • When forcibly changed from left handed behaviour to right-handed.
  • The child tries to attract attention and stammers when neglected.
  • If the teacher is strict and always punishes and terrorizes the child.
  • Humiliation in front of friends and class mates.
  • If one is frightened of every little thing.
  • Hurting one’s head due to some accident, specially the back side of the head and
  • If parents and family members all talk very fast, the child is unable to compete with their speed and thus faulters.

Whatever may be the reason for developing stammering, it occurs due to excitement tension fear nervousness hesitation anticipation of blocking and lack of confidence & courage to speak.
