The electrons and holes of LIFE

Dear friends, this time I am going to present a message in the form of dialogues. Please do not panic if you cannot relate to the heading of this article. I promise to make it clear at the end. Just enjoy.

It starts with four friends out on a boat ( Form of ‘Three men in a boat’ if Montmorency is taken a person 😁). The surging waves are going higher and higher. Their lives are at peril but they have a mission ahead…


Wallace, Foggy, Peter, Nori.

Early morning. Turbulent Sea.

Foggy: Hello! Is everyone ready?

Wallace: Hi! Absolutely!

Peter: Hoila!! Yippee!!

Nori: Whatever…

Wallace: We have a great mission ahead. Oh! it seems that a huge wave is on its way towards US!

Peter: Yup but we can surely get over it. Let’s make it an example for the onlookers.

Nori: Oh please! Hope you remember the last time. We were almost dead, you blockhead. You all are such oddballs.

Foggy: Silence. I think you all need to proceed. Leave the rest to me. Nori, go to the other end and row.

Nori goes. However, according to his habit, he sits in opposite direction but also rows in the wrong way. He is actually helping! However, he does not know it and is happy in his notorious mind that he is destroying the effort.
Wallace: I am really having a hard time. It seems to be a herculean task to keep up. I am trying my best.

Nori: Alas! We will all go to our watery graves and become a part of shadows forever.

Peter: Shut up, you couch potato Nori. We will surely make it…
…After much struggle, with infinite patience and boundless courage, our dauntless warriors are all safe now.

Wallace: Yayyyyyy!!!!! We finally did it. This time Foggy was with us. However, the best part is that we all tried and we could put Nori to positive work.

Nori: What! I really helped? It’s absolutely ludicrous!
Thus they kept facing all the obstacles with faith and perseverance. Let us wish good luck to them.

Now, revealing the real names of the characters. See if you can relate.






As I promised, I named this article this way because it upholds the essence of this story. In scientific terms, under influence of electric field, in a semiconductor, the current constituted is due to the electrons and holes. However, they move in opposite direction. Hence, their currents add up instead of subtracting . In simple terms, it is like positivity that boosts our will power but if we push our negativity away, that force in turn boosts us again. The simple sense of negative and negative makes a positive. Drive positivity in positive direction and negativity in negative direction. You always get a positive in your life.

    1. Yup. Simple things are mostly the ones most ignored and forgotten. Bringing forth these values in a different form reenlivens the immense power of these little things which we all accept but barely apply.

        It’s really good to see that we’re not alone out there still having β€œvalues β€œ .

  2. We all sometimes row in the wrong way. Luckily, there are people in our lives who help us get back on track.

    Interesting analogy… but through it all i could not help but think of an unusual coincidence!

    There was an English comedy tv show called ‘Last of the Summer Wine’. It was a long running series (over 20 years). There were numerous characters in it over time but they included: Foggy, Clegg, Wallace and Nora Batty. Clegg was played by Peter Sallis who was the voice for Wallace of Wallace and Gromit fame.

    Peter, Wallace ( x 2!) Foggy and NorA? Coincidence?

    1. OMG!!!πŸ˜²πŸ˜‚πŸ˜€
      I had just randomly picked the names just to match the first letters of the name and what it stood for. (Wallace-Work…)
      Thank you so much for mentioning this insane coincidence!!!
