By TODD VENEZIA: For the Ziona family, every day feels like a family reunion.

The massive clan from Mizoram, India, is the world's largest family -- and they got together recently to pose for a picture that shows how they give new meaning to the term "Big Love."

The family is headed by patriarch Ziona, a Christian polygamist with 39 wives, 94 children, 14 daughters-in-law and more than 40 grandkids. That's 181 family members.

"Today I feel like God's special child," said, Ziona, 67. "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 largest family."

The clan lives in a massive, purple-painted 100-room, four-story compound they call "Chhuanthar Run," or "The House of the New Generation."

The wives have to keep cooking fires going all day to feed their battalion. Each day, the clan goes through 220 pounds of rice, 132 pounds of potatoes, and 154 pounds of meat.

The younger wives all live in a large dormitory that is connected to Ziona's 600-square- foot private bedroom. The older wives, who are considered "out of use," stay in another area of the home on the first floor.

Ziona likes to have seven or eight wives by his side at all times.

"We stay around him most of the time, as he is the most important person in the house," said Rinkimi, 35, who has been married to the clan leader for 11 years. "Serving him is like serving God. He's the most handsome person in this whole village. I feel blessed to have him as my husband."

He picks his wives from penniless peasant girls from the area. His eldest son, Parliana, 50, thinks his dad is doing the women a service.

"Most of the women whom my father married were poor and orphan women of this village," the son said. "By marrying them, he has set an example in the history of mankind."

The women are led by Ziona's eldest wife, Zathiangi, 69, who he met at age 17. All the women and daughters have jobs in the house, from cooking for the wives to cleaning and washing for the girls. The males go out to work during the day.

"I have been married to Ziona the longest, and everyone in the family respects me. I take pride in looking after my husband and the family," Zathiangi boasts.
