This man is the Head of the World’s Largest Family and has Thirty Nine Wives
If you thought polygamy was having just more than one wife, then think again. There is no sane human being on earth who would agree to her husband having another wife; this is the sole reason why we have such practices of adultery and affairs labeled as crimes and sins in society. There are religions whose practices allow more than one wife and while that too is frowned upon, you’ll be shocked to find out about this particular man who by virtue of being the head of the world’s largest family and a religious sect, has attained that position by having 39 wives.
Yes! You read it right, Mr. Ziona Chana at sixty six years of age from Mizoram, India lives with his 39 wives and a family of more than a hundred and eighty persons
1 Shocking? Not for this man who believes he is contributing to the society
Good or bad? Judge for yourself. To all sensible people on this planet, it would definitely seem wrong , but in certain parts of the world, such practices of taking many wives is common just like this tribal village in Mizoram where men like Ziona Chana actually believe they are contributing to religion and society by marrying poor women.
Are you shocked? Or are you amused? Is Mr. Ziona Chana actually having his cake and eating it too? Living in the hills of Mizoram in a village called Baktwang, Chana manages his family with rock hard discipline. The gigantic house is a four storey mansion with a 100 rooms where 39 wives live with their 94 children. In high regard for his country’s recommendations on family planning, he ensured he sired just two to three children from each wife, hence 94 children. Mathematically speaking, Mr Chana, you should have made 117 children!! Why partiality?
2 His Wives Claim He Is the Most Handsome Man in the Village
The world’s largest family actually consumes 30 chickens at dinner and is maintained by rules that require every person to contribute to the work in the household. All of his wives are controlled by the eldest wife Zathiangi, who allots various chores to the other wives which include the cleaning, washing, cooking and taking care of children. Mr. Chana’s so called sense of discipline benefits him in such ways that the wife takes turns sleeping with him each night. This means that this holy man (he is the head of a religious sect) with no moral qualms of society actually gets to sleep with a different woman on each day of the month. Coming to think of it, he would even put Hugh Heffner of Playboy to shame.
3 Head of a Religious Sect Practicing Polygamy
If that’s not all, Ziona Chana actually believes he is doing society a favour. He considers himself a lucky man, blessed by having 39 wives. BLESSED? Blessed by whom? If Mr. Chana’s opinions weren’t enough to get on peoples’ nerves, his wives actually believe that he is doing them a good turn. One of his wives, Huntharnghanki actually went as far as to say that he was the most handsome man in the village!! Hello dear, doesn’t Mizoram have enough men?
What is most weird about such an alliance is the fact that Mr. Chana is actually the head of a self-styled Christian sect that originated in 1942. Call it misinterpretation of Biblical and Christian values, but this somewhat disoriented tribe actually feels their origins lie in the biblical book of revelation and to the time of Christ which is rather too much to accept, as Christianity, as everyone knows advocates the marriage of just one. The sect was actually thrown out of its village Hmawngkawn in Mizoram by elders for propagating an unholy theology of polygamy and hence shifted to Baktawng village where it is now 2000 strong today. Mr. Chana has also made it to the record books of Ripleys believe it or not, 2011 edition.
4 Mr. Chana Now Wanting To Marry Wives from the US
Being part of the world’s largest family is a record, never going to be broken simply because when the 94 children marry and produce offsprings of their own; they may well have to look for a mini country as it would definitely grow into the population enough to fill a small nation.
As for Mr. Chana? He still isn’t satisfied with one woman every night and he wants more and could well be the subject of study for vitality and vigor because he is still looking for women to marry. In order to be the Good Samaritan that he is, he wants to now search for poor women from the USA to marry as he believes himself to be a savior sent by …( whomever is for you to decide!!!) to look after all the poor women on Earth. WINK WINK!!!
