Error Messages were interesting and a bit funny also. I like them.

I had heard about Haiku and its origin, Japan, but never knew what type
of poetry it really was. I like to read Urdu (my language) poetry. And
some of our Urdu poets are trying to adopt the Haiku style in Urdu
poetry. I don't know if fans of Urdu poetry like this adoption or not?
