heard this from an NDTV news reporter as he was covering the bus service from Srinagar-Muzaffarabad that started off.
"....the security as usual remained unprecedented...."
now 'unprecedented' ought to imply something that has never been paralleled. something that hasnt happened before. and 'remain' implies that something hasnt changed, or rather stayed the same. so we have a security cover at a level that has never been paralleled, but stayed the same. hmmm.
