Kusha (कुश), in Hindu mythology, was one of the twin sons of Lord Rama and Sita (the other being Lava). Also called "Kush," he was believed to be the ruler of a kingdom centered at Karachi in ancient times, and the present day Pakistani city Kasur still references him in name. His brother Lava is purported to be the founder of Lahore.
