The calmness in the nuclear state of North Korea

Updated : March 12, 2019 01:53 PM IST

Life in North Korea is hard to imagine and hard to get information about. The remote country, armed with nuclear weapons, leads a very quaint life on the Korean Penninsula. Public transportation is the common mode of transport and most North Koreans can be seen cycling to work or other place of interest. One can also spot food kiosks and flower shops along the pavements. Lets take a look inside the rogue state to get a sense of what it would be like to live in North Korea:
