Wood-cutter,’ seems to be meant by the word druhaηtara in the Rigveda, where it is usually taken as druham- tara, ‘fiend-overpowering.’ But as an epithet of paraśu, axe,’ the other sense (‘ mighty wood-cutter ’) is more probable.
Is the name of a people mentioned several times in the Rigveda. In one passage it occurs, in the plural, with the Yadus, Turvaśas, Anus, and Pūrus, suggesting that these are the famous five peoples of the Rigveda. Again, the Druhyu king shared in the defeat of his allies by Sudās, and appears to have perished in the waters. In a second passage Druhyu, Anu, Turvaśa, and Yadu are all mentioned in the singular, while in another Pūru and Druhyu occur. From the tribal grouping it is probable that the Druhyus were a north-western people, and the later tradition of the Epic connects Gāndhāra and Druhyu.
