* i am late, but the course is canceled?

In the summer break, IIIT-D offers a refresher course to prepare freshly enrolled MTech students for the upcoming program. In the winter break, a refresher course is offered to the BTech students in their third year to repeat the fundamentals often expected by recruiters during the upcoming placement sessions. While a 2 days course requires around a week of preparation starting from making slides, thinking about useful and fun exercises, room allotment, etc. it is always disappointing to see that all the preparations are for nothing, since students do not show up, probably thinking they already know it all.

In December such a refresher course was offered to BTech students. It started in the morning at 10:00am with theoretical lectures followed up in the afternoon with hands-on exercises. However till 10:30am and out of a batch strength of 250 BTech students, only 2 showed up resulting in the cancellation of the course. Later in the afternoon I received this email:
