Purushothaman and his wife had photographic 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 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 seem to enjoy the visit to this picturesque village, known throughout the world due to Ziona," an official accompanying Purushothaman said.

The governor was at Baktawng Tlangnuam during the last leg of his travel through Serchhip district of the state.
