The world's biggest family: The man with 39 wives, 94 children and 33 grandchildren

The world's biggest family: The man with 39 wives, 94 children and 33 grandchildren

  • Ziona Chana lives with all of them in a 100-room mansion
  • His wives take it in turns to share his bed
  • It takes 30 whole chickens just to make dinner

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. 

She says Mr Chana noticed her on a morning walk in the village 18 years ago and wrote her a letter asking for her hand in marriage.

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.

Extracts from You Can Win... really good ones

These are extracts from "You Can Win" Quiet useful for our daily lives


To an egocentric person, the world begins, ends and revolves around him. An
egotist can be funny by default. A boss asked one of his employees how
badly he wanted a raise. The employee said, "Real badly. I have been
praying to God for one." The boss replied, "You are not going to get it
because you went over my head." An egotist talks and looks down on others.


People who don't accept responsibility shift the blame to their parents,
teachers, genes, God, fate, luck or the stars. Johnny said, "Mama, Jimmy
broke the window." Mama asked, "How did he do it?" Johnny replied, "I threw
a stone at him and he ducked." People who use their privileges without
accepting responsibility usually end up losing them. Responsibility
involves thoughtful action.


There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to the baker. One day the
baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting a pound and he
found that he was not. This
angered him and he took the farmer to court. The judge asked the farmer if
he was using any measure. The farmer replied, amour Honor, I am primitive.
I don't have a proper
measure, but I do have a scale." The judge asked, "Then how do you weigh
the butter?"  The farmer replied "Your Honor, long before the baker started
buying butter from me, I
have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker
brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in
butter. If anyone is to be
blamed, it is the baker." What is the moral of the story? We get back in
life what we give to others.


Three executives were fighting over who would pay the bill for lunch. One
said, "I will pay, I can get a tax deduction." The other said, "Let me have
it, I will get reimbursement from my company." The third said, "Let me pay,
because I am filing for bankruptcy next week."


Many years ago, a rider came across some soldiers who were trying to move a
heavy log without success. The corporal was standing by as the men
struggled. The rider asked the corporal why he wasn't helping. The corporal
replied, "I am the corporal; i give orders." The rider dismounted, went up
and stood by the soldiers and as they were lifting the log, he helped them.
With his help, the log got moved. The rider quietly mounted his horse and
went to the corporal and said, "The next time your men need help, send for
the Commander-in-Chief." After he left, the corporal and his men found out
that the rider was George Washington.


A boy went to the pet store to buy a puppy. Four of them were sitting
together, priced at $50 each. Then there was one sitting alone in a corner.
The boy asked if that was from
the same litter, if it was for sale, and why it was sitting alone. The
store owner replied that it was from the same litter, it was a deformed
one, and not for sale. The boy asked what the deformity was. The store
owner replied that the puppy was born without a hip socket and had a leg
missing. The boy asked, "What will you do with this one?" The reply was it
would be put to sleep. The boy asked if he could play with that puppy. The
store owner said, "Sure." The boy picked the puppy up and the puppy licked
him on the ear. Instantly the boy decided that was the puppy he wanted to
buy. The store owner said "That is not for sale!" The boy insisted. The
store owner agreed. The boy pulled out $2 from his pocket and ran to get
$48 from his mother. As he reached the door the store owner shouted after
him, "I don't understand why you would pay full money for this one when you
could buy a good one for the same price." The boy didn't say a word. He
just lifted his left trouser leg and he was wearing a brace. The pet store
owner said, "I understand. Go ahead, take this one." This is empathy.


In 1923, eight of the wealthiest people in the world met. Their combined
wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the government of the
United States at that time.
These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. But
let's examine what happened to them 25 years later.
1. President of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, lived on
borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt.
2. President of the largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane.
3. One of the greatest commodity traders, Arthur Cutton, died insolvent.
4. President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail.
5. A member of the President's Cabinet, Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail to go home and die in peace.
6. The greatest "bear" on Wall Street, Jessie Livermore, committed suicide.
7. President of the world's greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed  suicide.
8. President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed suicide.

What they forgot was how to make a life! It is stories like this that give  the readers the false impression that money is the root of all evil. That is not true. 

Money provides food  for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy. 
Money is only  a medium of exchange. 
We need two kinds of education. One that teaches us how to make a living and one that teaches us how to live. There are people who are so engrossed in their professional life that they neglect their  family, health and social responsibilities. If asked why they do this they  would reply that they were doing it for their family. 

Our kids are sleeping when we leave home. They are sleeping when we come home.
Twenty years later, we turn back, and they are all gone. We have no family left. That is sad.


A farmer had a dog who used to sit by the roadside waiting for vehicles to
come around. As soon as one came he would run down the road, barking and
trying to overtake it. One day a neighbor asked the farmer "Do you think
your dog is ever going to catch a car?" The farmer replied, "That is not
what bothers me. What bothers me is what he would do if he ever caught
one." Many people in life behave like that dog who is pursuing meaningless


There was a man taking a morning walk at or the beach. He saw that along
with the morning tide came hundreds of starfish and when the tide receded,
they were left behind and with the morning sun rays, they would die. The
tide was fresh and the starfish were alive. The man took a few steps,
picked one and threw it into the
water. He did that repeatedly. Right behind him there was another person
who couldn't understand what this man was doing. He caught up with him and
asked, "What are you doing? 

There are hundreds of starfish. How many can you help? What
difference does it make?" This man did not reply, took two more steps,
picked up another one, threw it into the water, and said, "It makes a
difference to this one."

What difference are we making? Big or small, it does not matter. If
everyone made a small difference, we'd end up with a big difference,
wouldn't we?

Avoiding Eyestrain While Working at a Computer

Eye strain while working at computer is a very common problem. Serious eye strain can cause a number of other problems from short term head and neck aches to long term conditions like Myopia. Here are a quick tips to save your eyes.

1 Position screen so light doesn't bounce off and create a glare. You can also put an antiglare shield on the screen.

2 Turn up the contrast to minimize strain on your eyes.

3 Light your work area well. Use full spectrum bulbs. They duplicate natural sunlight and are easier on the eyes.

4 Keep brightest lights over to the side if possible. Turn off overhead lighting. Close blinds so that sunlight doesn't glare on your screen.

5 Don't forget to blink. Blinking keeps eyes moistened.

6 Position your monitor 18 to 30 inches from your eyes.

7 Keep screen clean and properly focused.

8 Take frequent "eye breaks". Take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and just stare into the distance. Keep your eyes off the screen.

9 Rest your eyes by covering them with your palms. Keep them in complete darkness for a minute.

10 Keep frequently used paper documents in a holder that attaches to the monitor. This keeps your eyes from having to move up and down.

11 Adjust your glasses or contacts for the computer. Sometimes your prescription may not be suitable for computer work.

12 Keep your keyboard positioned directly in front of monitor.

13 Get up and move around at least every two hours. It gives your eyes a break, as well as the rest of your body.

Difference between http:// and https:// Important Information

If you already know, then also share with friends who do not know.
Difference between http:// and https://   (Very important.......must know.......)
The main difference between http:// and https:// is -
It's all about keeping you secure, HTTP stands for HyperText Transport Protocol, which is just a fancy way of saying it's a protocol (a language, in a manner of speaking) for information to be passed back and forth between web servers and clients.
The important thing is the letter S which makes the difference between HTTP and HTTPS. The S (big surprise) stands for 'Secure'.
If you visit a website or webpage, and look at the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the following:
http://. This means that the website is talking to your browser using the regular 'unsecure' language.
In other words, it is possible for someone to 'eavesdrop' on your computer's conversation with the website. If you fill out a form on the website, someone might see the information you send to that site.
This is why you never ever ever enter your credit card number in an http website!
But if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can eavesdrop on.
You understand why this is so important, right?
If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn't, there's no way you're going to enter sensitive information like a credit card number!

http VS https
When come to booking the ticket and keying the personal information it should take you to  https URL
SO it is safe to do transactions .... 
pls remember when you buy any thing online make sure passing your information on the website showing https REPEAT https........ don't do anything that is without the 'S'

Something that Keeps you going...


Arthur Ashe, the legendary Wimbledon player was dying of AIDS which he got due to infected blood he received during a heart surgery in 1983… 

From world over, he received letters from his fans, one of which conveyed: "Why does GOD have to select you for such a bad disease"? 

To this Arthur Ashe replied: 
"The world over, 50 million  children start playing tennis, 5 million learn to play tennis, 500,000 learn professional tennis, 50,000 come to the circuit, 5000 reach the  grand slam, 50 reach Wimbledon, 4 to semi final, 2 to the finals, when I was holding a cup I never asked GOD 'Why me?'. And today in pain I should not be asking GOD 'Why me?' "

"Happiness keeps you Sweet, 
Trials keep you Strong, 
Sorrow keeps you Human, 
Failure keeps you humble and
Success keeps you glowing,
But only Faith & Attitude keeps you going...”
