For a man who remained a staunch Congressman all his life, the last month was extremely distressing and at one level, humiliating.

He had unleashed a vitriolic and bitter campaign against the actor-turned politician in last year's Lok Sabha elections. What was really below the belt was Nirupam's public statement: "Sunil Dutt is an old man, he may not have much longer to live, he keeps very unwell, he should retire...he has attended Parliament only three times in five years." Dutt had decided to take Nirupam to court.
