The title of this short final chapter has many meanings in Sanskrit and Malayalam: conclusion, summing up, drawing together, a collection, etc. What is collected here are a few general remarks, all in one place, about the state of mathematics in India – as Nilakantha in the wisdom of his years might have envisioned it, say – at the apogee of its trajectory. The word upasamhāra also means destruction, the end.
