The master is absorbed in sleep.
The darwan hes kept the key. ( Darwan is the watchman.. the security)
The thief is so clever that
leaving the owner alone,
he catches hold of the darwan
He says, "Give me the key, fellow, otherwise you'll gasp for breath--
you'll go secretly to court."
The thief, finished with everything, goes there-to Khaepa Syam Sundor's garden.
Krishna is sometimes called the "thief of love"; Hari actually implies "one who steals"-the heart and soul being understood. The garden He is stealing from in the song is the human body which is controlled by an ego wrapped in the materialistic sleep of the senses. The Thief knows the gatekeeper (darwan), the mind, has kept the key, and bullies him to hand it over, even threatening him with justice since he has abused his position. Then the Thief goes away to the poet's "garden."
