I do not agree it has an indepth meaning. All he meant was conquering the mind.

"Dhol, gawar, sudra, pashu, nari sakal tadan ke adhikari"
Literal meaning- drums, illiterate, of lower caste, animals, and female deserve a beating to straighten up and get the acts together.But what the saint truly meant was probably as below-

1* DHOL- The strings of the drum needs to be tightened to get beautiful music out of the instrument.He is referring to the HUMAN MIND which left lose can create havoc.Humans must control their mind.(irrelevant thoughts)

Dear Ravindra Yadav,
The world has always had a slew of male chauvinistic pigs in the upper echelons of the societal and religious setup. Sometimes seemingly bona fide 'saints' like Tulsidas exhibit a streak of the aforesaid chauvinism. They wrote beautiful verses dripping with divine honey, but deep down inside, they fostered misogyny. My dear,liberated, modern, fellow citizens of the world, Mr. krish and Gulshan Ajmani have (after due deliberation) arrived at their responses. Please, respected sirs of the modern world, do not indulge in mental gymnastics to convince yourselves and those credulous around you of the nobleness of the verses in question. They are a testimony to the medieval misogyny rife in India. Lets face it, women weren't highly esteemed back then.
Tulsidass & Co. believed in escaping the harsh realities of medieval India by indulging in fantasies such as those about guys who went to a forest where they killed demons et cetera. I do not blame them. This was their ve ...more

People are just fooled by the politicians, tadan means dekhna, therefore the whole sentence is about to look after these, dhol, gawar shudra pashu aur naari, ye sab dekhne ke adhikari hain matlab dhyan rakhe jaane ke adhikari, it doesn't means taadna aur prataadna..

It is in Rama Charita Manas- written by Tulsi Das. It is said by Bharat to Manthra. It is just a dialogue in an epic and conveys nothing more.
