My experience @ Partha Bagchi’s Clinic

I’m sharing my experience of attending 13 sessions @ Partha Bagchi’s clinic. The very first day he introduced me with the basic technique of prolongation and we had to follow it all day long. Apart from that he even put emphasis on vocal exercises as well as meditation. He even made us talk on the microphone in front of other PWS which is helpful for people who have a fear of talking in front of a crowd.

Now how effective the course is??
Well it is effective…but not a necessity when you know the relevant techniques…and you practice it religiously yourself. I have observed that the main problem that lies with us stammerers is a want of a instant cure and giving hope all hope when we fail to get the cure. I had gone to take his therapy with the same thinking and was expected to have a stammer free life after those 2 weeks. I had improved my speech to a considerable extent but wasn’t fully cured and due to that i kinda lost hope and gave up practice and i’m back to my previous state. So do remember one thing….practice is the key….of course i knew all the techniques but never practiced it myself….but did it there…so it helped a lot.
So it isn’t a necessity to attend any course if u know the techniques but knowing isn’t enough, u need to apply them too and practice it regularly.
One thing I didn’t like about Partha Bagchi was his misleading advertisements of a sure cure within 14 days otherwise it was okay.
So to sum up, the course is very effective but nothing new(information wise) for people who have attended speech therapies, done researches, etc. Only thing is that you get a environment to practice at a stretch of 14 days there with everyone else.
The thing is we know a lot bout stammering, infact I feel that I know so much that I can help people get rid of their stammer but when it comes to me I lack the determination to practice everyday. Just knowing isn’t enough.
I had been talking with Sachin Sir, and have plans of opening a SHG in my area in Kolkata. Will start it very soon.
Interested people from Kolkata can contact me. My number is 9836150610.

    Yes, those misleading claims of CURE in 2 weeks are objectionable and very misleading for us, the young and desperate.. Why cant he (PB) speak the truth?

    This claim of cure in 2 weeks had been on newspaper ads for long. I kept seeing it for 10 years, but never tried it, despite living in the same city Bangalore. I was sure no one could help me and I was destined to suffer for life. When I was pushed by a close friend to give it a try, I reluctantly joined the course. For the first time in my life, I saw hope. I could actually speak freely. And speak freely without any external aid or equipment or use of medicine, holy ash, herbs and the like. No words can describe that ecstasy which only a stammerer can feel. If it was possible to speak freely during the 2 weeks, by using the same techniques, it is logical to expect that I should be able to continue speaking freely. Without persistent effort, we cannot expect long-term benefit from any course, not just this one. How about 'learn a language in 30 days' series of books? Is anyone criticising those publishers for false claim? If a claim of stammering cure in 2 weeks could attract a person like me only after 10 years, the effect is not much. Afterall, just 19000 people are claimed to have been cured in the last 20 years by Mr.Partha Bagchi. There are about 1 crore stammerers in India. To bring them all to free speech, a claim like this does not warrant criticism. The stammerer is not under a magical or hypnotic spell. He actually speaks himself and gets the confidence. What is anyone's problem with that? If a conservative, introverted cynic like me could get benefitted, most other stammerers should be able to get benefit from the course. A little focussed effort after the 2 weeks course is necessary however, over a period of years. We have to only spend time for this, unlike for physical fitness where we even spend money for fees month after month.

    @ Subbu above:
    "it is logical to expect that I should be able to continue speaking freely."
    Here is the catch. Many go back and face the same problem.. Does Mr Bagchi offer them some kind of follow up? for more fee?
    You are feeling good and I am very happy for you. But I will be happier if you could write the same AFTER one year..
    We have written a lot about what is wrong with Mr Bagchi's approach in IPWS, Yahoo chat group.. Please check that..

    Dear Arun,

    We are having a communication workshop for people who stammer in Delhi on 22nd and 23rd October 2011. Check the details at http://t-tisa.blogspot.com/2011/09/3-days-communication-workshop-in-new.html. Catch a train and come!

    If possible do try to attend our National conference

    And Yes, stammering can be very frustrating! If you browse web, you will find a lot of good and helpful information. You can do the following to help yourself :
    Number 1: don't feel ashamed.
    Number 2: do something about it now, since you can see that your career can get affected by it..
    Number 3: recovery from stammering is a long process. It takes about one year of hard work and constant counselling. Do you have such commitment? If not, DEVELOP IT!

    Therapy for stammering involves a lot of things- working on your emotions/feelings, your speech, any emotional baggage that you may be carrying.

    By the way do check out the self help manual @ http://stammer.in/menu-self-help-manual.html . There are a lot of exercises and activities that you can try!

    Also check out http://www.stutteringhelp.org/Portals/English/Book_0012_tenth_ed.pdf and http://www.masteringstuttering.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/Redefining-Stuttering-2011.pdf

    Also keep checking our blog (http://t-tisa.blogspot.com/) and website (http://stammer.in/) to know about the next communication workshop and if possible attend one.

    Most importantly have faith in yourself and your abilities. Everything will turn out well even though it may not look like that now…All of us have been their and have come out of that!!

    actually stammering cannot be cured in 1,2,3,or 4..days or weeks .ask to yourself does this problem arised overnight ?no it appeared & this problem continued for month after month year after years so if a problem arised year after year how can it be cured in a few weeks.we can not cure stammering in few weeks we need to practice all those techniqes learned from the speech therapists for a few years or month. it depends on the severity of stammering.if the stammerer is an adult he has to practice those techniques for at least 1 or 2 years.
