Story of Pitrupaksh
Legends say Karna, son of Kunti was a philanthropist. He never denied help to anyone who approached him. He had donated a lot of wealth and had indulged in charity but had not donated food ever. Karna left earth after his death and reached heaven. The great charity which he had done on Earth was returned to him manifold in heaven. But it was all material wealth and there was no food. He then realized that although he had done all kinds of charities, he did not donate food.
He prayed to the God of Death, who sent him back to earth for 14 days, to make up for this deficiency. Karna fed the Brahmins and poor and offered oblations of water during the 14 days, which is observed in the Mahalaya Paksha or commonly called Pitrupaksha . On his return to Heaven, he had plenty of food and it has been anticipated that offerings made during the period of Pitru Paksha benefits all the departed souls, whether they are connected to you or not.
