This is like that polygamist TV drama “Big Love,” only multiplied by 13. Ziona Chana, a guy in India, has the world’s biggest family: 39 wives, 94 kids and 33 grandchildren. And they apparently all snuggle up in one big dorm-like building, which has 100 rooms.
Ziona and his family live in the Baktwang village in the Indian state of Mizoram, where he heads up a 4,000-member religious sect. And yup, you guessed it, the sect allows men to have as many wives as they want.
“We stay around him as he is the most important person in the house. He is the most handsome person in the village,” said Rinkmini, 35, one of his wives.
Err… yeah. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.
Still, before you make any judgmental snickering about weird religious sects, you should probably know I come from a huge-ass family, too — my grandma had 14 kids! And people wonder about China’s one-child policy…
