Clue 1: Musical --> Sonata --> a car manufactured by Hyundai in India

Clue 2: Windgod --> Maruti

Clue 3: Mythicalship --> Pushpaka Vimana --> Pushpak -> Multi-utility vehicle manufactured by Hindustan Motors

Hence TL: Automobiles manufactured in India.

Sonata is a composition. Can it be interpreted as a musical? Hence your conclusion is not accepted.

Clue 1: Musical- Oklahoma - one of the ships attacked in Pearl Harbor

Clue 2: Windgod - Kamikaze

Clue 3: Mythicalship - Enterprise - aircraft carrier that helped defend Pearl Harbor

Trylateral - The Pearl Harbor attack

anantha said...

how does kamikaze lead to windgod? nimish's short film connection is too contrived.

q said...

kamikaze in japanese means "Divine Wind"

anantha said...

bought your point. but it still seems like force fitting.

Trylateral is Australia.

1) Musical - Opera - Sydney Opera House - Famous Australian landmark.

2) Windgod - Auster - Roman god of the south wind - The name Austalia comes from the Latin word Australis, meaning "of the South".

3) Mythicalship - Argo - The ship on which Jason and the Argonauts sailed from Iolcus to retrieve the Golden Fleece - Australia is known as "The Land of the Golden Fleece" because of the quantity of wool produced there.

Musical - Hiawatha's Wedding feast - Samuel Coleridge taylor musical

Windgod - the west-wind god - Hiawatha's father

Mythicalship - phantom ship -- HW Longfellow poem

Try 1: Hiawatha

Musical - phantom of the opera
windgod - walk's like the wind
Mythicalship - phantom ship

Try 2: phantom

anantha said...

priya's guess is plausible. a notional brownie awarded. but i think my answer fits like a glove.

srividya said...

anantha - you sure must be getting a kick from making all us drudges wondering how you think!

Sumo said...

Flying Dutchman

Which is both a musical piece and a mythical ship.

The wind gods are probably necessary to get the ships moving, mythical or otherwise

Devashish said...

My first guess here-

Musical - Lion King - Kesari - Hanuman's father

Windgod - Marut/Vayu - Hanuman is considered his son too (hence Maruti)

Mythicalship - Hanuman carried Ram and Laxman on his shoulders.

Trylateral - Hanuman

Clue 3: Mythicalship - Argo

Trylateral - Web Browsers

srividya said...

windgod = NE WIND + DEVA = NEVADA - LAS VEGAS

MYTHICALSHIP - ARGO - ARGOSY

SO TL - GAMBLING CASINOS

srividya said...

WINDGOD - GODSPEED - SPEEDWELL, THE OTHER SHIP IN THE CONVOY'
