The world's biggest family - Ziona Chana
The man with 39 wives, 94 children and 33 grandchildren - at this moment!!!
He is head of the world's biggest family - and says he is 'blessed' to have his 39 wives.
Ziona Chana also has 94 children, 14-daughters-in-law and 33 grandchildren.
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.
'I consider myself a lucky man to be the husband of 39 women and head of the world's largest family.'
The family is organised with almost military discipline, with the oldest wife Zathiangi organising 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 of potatoes and boil up to 220lb of rice.
Coincidentally, Mr Chana is also head of a sect that allows members to take as many wives as he wants.
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.
He keeps the youngest women near to his bedroom with the older members of the family sleeping further away - and there is a rotation system for who visits Mr Chana's bedroom.
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.
Another of his wives, Huntharnghanki, said the entire family gets along well. The family system is reportedly based on 'mutual love and respect'
And Mr Chana, whose religious sect has 4,00 members, says 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 said.
One of his sons insisted that Mr Chana, whose grandfather also had many wives, marries the poor women from the village so he can look after them.

also ........Meet the World's Youngest Grandparents
A DAD has become Britain’s youngest grand-father at the age of 29 after his daughter gave birth at 14.
Shem Davies was also 14 when he became a father for the first time.
Now schoolgirl daughter Tia has had a baby girl a week before her 15th birthday.
Last night jobless Shem — who split with Tia’s mum Kelly three months after Tia was born — said he was “absolutely delighted” at the new arrival.
Tiny Ava Grace is in an incubator after she was born ten weeks early — weighing less than 2lb.
But the family said she is “doing remarkably well” at the special care baby unit where she is being cared for in Bridgend, South Wales.
Shem spoke of his shock when Tia told him she was pregnant by her 15-year-old boyfriend Jordan Williams.
The grandad — who has a nine-month-old son with new girlfriend Robyn Thomas — said: “One minute Tia’s a baby, the next she’s pregnant.
“I could have yelled at her, but what’s the point?
“I know how hard it’s going to be for them because I was in their shoes at the same age.
“I didn’t handle it very well when I became a dad at 14.
“I wasn’t able to cope with it and I ran away.” Tia’s cafe worker mum Kelly, 30, said: “My worst nightmare has always been that Tia would repeat my mistake and get pregnant young.
“I always lectured her about contraception.”
Shem and Kelly, of Bridgend, have both been supporting Tia as she watches over Ava Grace — the SIXTH generation of the family alive.
A family friend said: “It's really hard on Tia because all she wants to do is give her baby a cuddle, like any new mum. But she must stay inside the incubator.”
Shem told a pal he had not yet wet the baby’s head, adding: “It’s too soon. Let’s wait until she’s out of the special care unit.”
