Ziona Chana has 39 wives, 94 children, 14 daughters-in-law and 33 grandchildren. They all live with him in his hotel-like 100-room, four-story house perched among the hills of Baktwang village in the Indian state of Mizoram.
One year, he married ten wives. Two of them sisters. His 39 wives say they are blessed to have him and take turns to share his bed.
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.
‘We stay around him as he is the most important person in the house. He is the most handsome person in the village.
