In between Ranakpur and Jodhpur there is only one place extracting sesame oil in traditional way using the cow.
The cow is suposed to go round a wooden pole, where there is a kind of mortar that makes the oil by pressing the sesame while the cow is moving.
The cow, however, cannot see outside while working becasue the eyes are covered by leather eyepatch so that he can only walk forward without thinking..
