The people who are the descendants of Vishwamitra are known as Kausikas. The people take Rajarishi Kausika as their root. There are eleven Royal clans of the ninety-six clan of Marathas that belong to Kaushika gotra.
The Gotra, the families or tribes of the Kausika Brahmans are referred in the Vishnu Purana
. Kausikas are said to have been multiplied by intermarriages with other tribes, who were originally of the regal cast, like Vishwamitra
. They obtained Brahmanhood through devotion.
The people belonging to the Kaushika Gotra are short tempered as they have descended from Sage Vishwamitra.
