The world's biggest family: The man with 39 wives, 94 children and 33 grandchildren!

Ziona Chana is head of the world's biggest family - and says he is 'blessed' to have his 39 wives.

They live in a 100-room, four storey house set amidst the hills of Baktwang village in the Indian state of Mizoram, where the wives sleep in giant communal dormitories.Mr. Chana told the Sun: “Today I feel like God's special child. He's given me so many people to look after”.

The family is organized with almost military discipline, with the oldest wife Zathiangi organizing her fellow partners to perform household chores such as cleaning, washing and preparing meals. One evening meal can see them pluck 30 chickens, peel 132lb (60kg) of potatoes and boil up to 220lb (100 kg) of rice!


Coincidentally, Mr. Chana is also head of a sect that allows members to take as many wives as he wants.Rinkmini, one of Mr Chana's wives who is 35 years old, said: “We stay around him as he is the most important person in the house. He is the most handsome person in the village”.
