Mischa Barton Takes Sitar Lessons

Mischa Barton Takes Sitar Lessons

Former O.C. starlet Mischa Barton has been learning about new religions and learning a new instrument during her stay in India. Here’s what the 22-year-old actress wrote on her blog:

“I’ve been having an amazing spiritual exploration visiting Hindu temples and learning about Buddhism, both beautiful religions. Hyderabad where we’re filming is a real inspiration in the fact that Christians, Muslims and Hindus all get along so harmoniously. I must admit I used to make fun of people who were all into yoga and chai tea thinking it was another ridiculous health fad. But now I’m that person! First of all Masala Chai tea, the traditional way with milk and sugar is delicious, and this is coming from a brit who only likes my breakfast tea!

“I must say my goal coming here was to learn to play the sitar and it’s coming along real slow as apparently it’s not that easy to procure a great sitar teacher here, I guess it not late 60′s with Ravi Shankar and George Harrison roaming around unfortunately!!!!”
