February 20, 2011

An Indian man, from Mizoram, has the largest family in the world with 39 wives, 94 children and 33 grandchildren.  Ziona Chana and his family live in a 100-room, four-story house set amidst the hills of Baktwang village in Mizoram, where the wives sleep in giant communal dormitories.Chana also has 94 children, 14-daughters-in-law and 33 grandchildren.

The head of the family and leader of the “Chana” sect — which allows polygamy — is 66-year-old Ziona Chana who lives with his family in a 100-room, four-storyed house named ”Chhuan That Run” or the House of the New Generation. Previously known as Khuangtuaha Pawl, the sect was formed on June 12, 1942, after the followers of Khuangtuaha were evicted from Hmawngkawn village by the village chief for propagating “wrong and dangerous” theology

 Mr Chana, whose religious sect has 4,000 members, said he has not stopped looking for new wives. To expand my sect, I am willing to go even to the U.S. to marry,’ he added. Mr. Chana has taken on a new theological belief where he now has the  ability to claim Head of Household with 181 exemptions.
