I didn't know that when she was young, she jumped off a moving train for love.<p>She is now 90. Bent with age, she shuffles with a walker. But she's still radiant, her hair perfectly dyed.<p>It sounds like a typical Bollywood story. Boy meets girl in pre-independence India. They fall in love. Her family says no way. The boy came from the same clan.

It seems kind of unfair, I said, that because of the 12-hour time difference, I get to see <em>The Avengers</em> before you do.<p>Turns out I was a week off. <em>The Avengers</em> actually released in 39 countries around the world, including India, a week before it opens in America.<p>Once, we waited patiently in India for the latest Hollywood releases to trickle their way over. That's no longer true for the big popcorn and cola blockbusters like <em>The Avengers</em>.
