Why I’m telling my Sikh ‘aunties’: come on in, the water’s lovely | Minreet Kaur
I’ve been helping the south Asian community learn to swim for the past two years – and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done“Can you help me lift my legs,” says a Sikh woman in her 70s, who’s determined to keep her face above the water. She is preparing to swim her first length of the local swimming pool. “Yes, auntie,” I say, and dutifully place my hands under her, and suddenly, she is buoyant. In her leopard-print costume and with bangles skimming the water, she launches into a determined breaststroke, with her neck arched to the beams. She stops halfway down the lane, just before her feet no longer touch the bottom. It’s hard to describe just how big a milestone this is for her – and for me. I’ve been teaching her to swim for six weeks, and just a few classes ago, she was terrified of getting wet, let alone being seen in leopard print and swimming lengths. Now, her confidence is unrecognisable. She is one of many south Asian women I teach who never learned to swim as a child, and who is now reckoning with their inherited view of leisure, tightly bound in cultural and gendered restrictions.

Ellen DeGeneres Pays Tribute To Ex-Girlfriend Anne Heche
Ellen DeGeneres (L) and Anne Heche pictured in 2000Ellen DeGeneres paid tribute to former girlfriend Anne Heche on Friday with a short but heartfelt message for the actor’s family and loved ones. The former talk show host’s statement came after Heche’s family and friends said the actor was brain-dead following injuries sustained in a car crash last week. Heche remained on life support while family determined whether she was a match for organ donation, according to a statement from family and friends provided to CNN and NBC News. “This is a sad day,” DeGeneres wrote on Twitter. “I’m sending Anne’s children, family and friends all of my love.” This is a sad day. I'm sending Anne's children, family and friends all of my love.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) August 12, 2022On Monday, DeGeneres was approached in Los Angeles by a photographer for the Daily Mail, who asked for comment on Heche’s condition at the time.After noting that she and her ex were “not in touch with each other,” DeGeneres added, “I don’t want anyone to be hurt.” Heche had been hospitalised since 5 August, when she crashed her car into a home located in the Mar Vista neighbourhood of Los Angeles. Initially listed in critical condition, she reportedly fell into a coma three days later and never regained consciousness. Earlier this week, the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed that Heche had cocaine in her system at the time of the accident. DeGeneres and Heche dated from 1997 to 2000. The two women were among Hollywood’s most buzzed-about couples at a time when mainstream culture was considerably less inclusive of the LGBTQ community. Ellen DeGeneres (left) and Anne Heche in 1998. In a 2020 interview with Mr. Warburton magazine, Heche recalled the backlash she’d received when she brought DeGeneres to the premiere of her 1997 film Volcano. “I was told by Fox Studio executives that if I brought Ellen to the premiere, my contract would be terminated,” she told the publication. “I brought Ellen despite those threats, and we were escorted out of the theatre before the lights came on by security and not allowed to attend the premiere party because they did not want any photos of us together.”She continued, “Our time was a beautiful part of my life and one that I wear with honor. I was a part of a revolution that created social change, and I could not have done that without falling in love with her.”
