The analogy of a spider web hints the upcoming massive labyrinth of events which will eventually push the Hasthi clan into the black hole. A "vanam" is not complete without the spiders crisscrossing their silver web across the branches, great start.
I was wondering about the usage of "Kandavam" vs "Kanda vanam"! That forced me to do some research before bothering you with my question. I found that Thirumangai Alwar use the term Kanda vanam in 4th Thirumozhi. "Kanda vanam enbadhor kadu" and in another pasuram 1089
"Kandavathai kanal erithanai" he has used the term "Kandavam"
Awaiting eagerly for the next episode in Kandavam.
