Poet Farid Sayed has a career of struggle which is reflected in his rhymes. His rhymes are based on humanistic outlook, struggle for existence, suffering of the poor and call to extend helping hands to the deprived and distressed people. Great Liberation War and Victory of Bangladesh have been depicted with call to uphold the glorious history and huritage.
Some of the rhymes reflect picture of Bangladesh with its natural beauty and the struggling lives of the people. Humanistic approach based on universal Islamic ideology is a theme in some of his rhymes, which speak of extending sympathy and co-operation to the people irrespective of caste, creed and colour. His welfare viewpoint includes expatriates, who contributed to the War of Liberation.
Farid Sayed condemns anti-social elements and evils for innocent people to get rid of His rhymes condemns the most barbarous genocide and destruction committed in Myanmar against the helpless Rohingya community under the shade of the lady in the guise of ‘peace.’ He also condemns the dominating superpower for probable catastrophy in the world.
The name of the book hints easy availability of water from a nearest fountain. The name in a general sense reminds the readers the flow of water in a spring. But it has also a deeper significance to in-depth readers, who may think of easy availability of water in the eternal Heaven, where the flow of water underneath has been described in the Quran in the Sura Al-e-Imran 3 : 136, Nisa 4:13, 122, Qahf 18: 30-31, Hajj 22:14, and Bayyina 98 : 8.

Farid Sayed’s presentation of rhymes is lucid coining easy words:

Farid Sayed, a poet from Nawabganj thana, where epic poet Kaikobad was born, has created the rhymes with excellent rhythm. Some rhymes have with the flavour of poems and we appreciate his creativity. The publishers : eminent poet of rhymes Mansur Muzammil and dramalist Partho Kaysar deserve thanks for this publication patronizing poet. Thanks also to Ritubindu for sketches representing the thoughts.
The book has been dedicated to Farid Sayed’s father Md Razab Khan and mother Lutfunnesa.
We expect wide circulation of this book.
