Someone asked me the other day if I missed Benazir. When I said I did, she was shocked, saying it was the first time someone had said that to her. I understand why people don’t – there were so many hopes attached to her, and she let everyone down. But in retrospect, she may have been corrupt, she may have been a kleptocrat in a Hermes scarf, she may have been undemocratic when it came to handling her own party, she may have joined hands with a dictator for the much-hated NRO…but I miss her. I miss her eloquence, her media manipulation, her grace. I even miss the outrageous clothes she wore and that terrible Urdu accent. One year later, it is terribly hard for me to believe that I will never see her again. RIP Benazir.
