VISUALS: How does an underground nuclear bunker look?

Reports indicate that about 14,000 nuclear bunkers are being built by India, all of them on the Indo-Pak border to protect families. The border towns and villages are within the range of tactical nuclear weapons in Pakistan's possession, although the N-option is now only in the realm of blackmail, say defence analysts. 

But if you have ever wondered what they look or feel like,  here are some visuals from inside a Nuclear shelter in Berlin.
