World’s biggest family found in India


Ziona Chan lives with his world’s biggest  family of 181 members. The world’s biggest family lives in a mansion of more than 100 rooms in Mizoram. He is the head of the biggest family in the world with 39 wives, 94 children, 14 daughters-in-law and 33 grand children. He finds himself blessed to have such a big family. 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.


He even married ten women in one year, when he was at his most prolific, and enjoys his own double bed while his wives have to make do with communal dormitories. 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.

100 rooms

Head of this world’s biggest family, Ziona already has 39 wives and claims to afford one more. His wives follow a rotation system to share bed with him. His family follows strict military discipline for work and helps each other in the household chores. His oldest wife is responsible to assign duties to everyone for the household work. The wives take care of cooking and the daughters do cleaning and washing tasks.  The family of 181 consumes 60 kg rice, 90 kg potatoes and 30 whole chickens in a day.


Coincidentally, Mr Chana is also head of a sect that allows members to take as many wives as he wants. The Chana sect was formed in 1942 and believes in returning of Jesus Christ, after which they will be ruling the world with their families.

This is the reason why Mr. Chana has made this big family and still wishes to marry in order to add more members to this world’s biggest family.
