IT IS SAID THAT OXIDATION HAPPENS AT ANODE SO IT MUST BE POSITIVELY CHARGED.BUT IN SOME CASES I AM HEARING THAT IT IS NEGATIVELY CHARGED AS WELL AS POSITIVELY CHARGED.WHY IS IT SO?PLEASE BE DESCRIPTIVE ABOUT THE CHARGE ON ANODE

In a discharging battery or galvanic cell (diagram at right) the anode is the negative terminal since that is where the current flows into the device.
In a recharging battery, or an electrolytic cell, the anode is the positive terminal, which receives current from an external generator.
