Sheila writes: The Rogerebert.com team was heartbroken to learn of the untimely death of director Prashant Bhargava on May 15. Rogerebert.com contributor and Far-Flung Correspondent Omer M. Mozaffar wrote a beautiful tribute to Bhargava on Rogerebert.com, saying, "He was a true auteur. Some auteurs resist categories and forms, rebelling against them. Some auteurs, push envelopes of structure and content. For Prashant, all the tools, genres, and techniques were options in his pallet, fusing various cultures and styles into a unique piece. In other words, he was not bound by the limitations of the equipment or conventions of the media available to him."
