Kavasha is the son of Ilusha. He was born to a slave girl. In a mythical story it is said that the Rishis, when holding a sacrificial session on the banks of the Saraswati. They debarred Kavasha from their Soma sacrifice. The Rishis said that Kavasha cannot perform the rite as he was a son of a slave girl. He was a gamester and not a Brahman, thus cannot perform a Yajna.
The Rishis drove him into the desert so that he might not drink the water of the Saraswati. But a prayer was revealed to him by which he obtained the favour of the waters, and the Saraswati surrounded him on all sides. When the Rishis saw this they said that the gods know him and they must bring Kavasha back to perform the religious rite.
