Bhargava, also spelled Bhargav, is a community in India who believe themselves to be descended from the sage Bhrigu. Its members originate from the Dhosi Hill area and were also known as Dhusars.

History[edit]

The Bhargava believes themselves to be descended from the sage Bhrigu and his son Chyavana.[1]

Present status[edit]

The Bhargava have well-established community associations, the Bhargava Sabhas, that operate in various cities[2] under an umbrella organisation, the All-India Bhargava Sabha (AIBS) located at Gurgaon, Haryana. There are around 37 of these Bhargava Sabhas.[3]

AIBS has also held international conferences. These took place in Canada (2008), USA (2009) and Dubai (2012).[citation needed]
