Aizawl, Jan. 18: One of the largest families in the world today received a guest in the Mizoram Governor, Mr Vakkom Purushothaman, at their home in Baktawng Tlangnuam village.
Mr Purushothaman and his wife had a photo session with Ziona Chana, his 39 wives and children and grandchildren altogether numbering over 160 but staying under one roof.
Ziona, head of the family, which is considered one of the largest in the world, is also the chief of the Chana religious sect.
C. Lalrinthanga, a leader of the sect, said Ziona also invited the Governor for a typical Mizo tea session and organised a cultural show performed by the members of the sect and students of the village.
“The Governor was in the village for around two and half hours and seemed to enjoy the visit to this picturesque village, known throughout the world due to Ziona,” an official accompanying Mr Purushothaman said.
The Governor was at Baktawng Tlangnuam during the last leg of his travel through Serchhip district of the State.
