Karna eventhough was a freind of an evil person
he did all his deeds with ethics
before his death krishna said to  him to ask for  wishes

The Lord promises Karna to grant him whatever boon he wishes. He  requests two things: firstly, that as soon as he dies, his mother Kunti shall be informed. She will rush to the battlefield and proclaim publicly that Karna is her son and that he is not of low caste. Secondly, in order to reach Krishna's feet (that is, the liberation of his soul from the cycle of births) Karna wants to fulfil the good deed of feeding others (annadhanam). This is the only dhanam he has not been able to carry out in this life, because nobody wanted to eat in the house of a person of low caste. He asks Krishna to give him in his next births the means to be liberal and the opportunity to carry out annadhanam. A moved Krishna grants Karna these favours and tells him that in his next life he will be reborn as Siruttondar Nayanar

siruthondar nayanar was a pious man. he was devoted to lord shiva, and his wife too followed his principles and never complained.  he followed a rule in his life. every day after doing pooja to lord shiva, he would feed a brahman and only then would have his meal.

it was customary and every day a brahman would pass by his house and he was served meals. His wife had equall devotion in his principle.

they had a son and he too was very pious. Lord shiva decided to test his devotion. he took the form of a brahman and reached siruthondar nayarar's house soon after he finished his shiva pooja and asked for alms

siruthondar nayanar was very much pleased. he could see the brahman had a rare glow in his face and  called him in to have meals. the brahman readily agreed

he said he would have a bath in the pond and would take his meals only after that. nayanar said that the meals is ready and he can have it soon after his bath

the brahman said that he would not take any vegetarian food and he needs the curry of the child who is born to the couple

nayanar and his wife were shocked. they had only one son and offering him to the brahman would be impossible

the brahman left for bath and said he is very much hungry and needed meals soon after he returns

nayanar and his wife were shell shocked they didnt know what to do , he prayed to lord shiva as what sin did they do that they had to see this day in thier life

nayanar said that if they dont feed the brahman their principle would go in vain and they had to prepare the curry of their son and no other way,.

his wife said why to bring in the child in this issue. would it be ethical to sacrifice their son for the sake of their pricniple

nayanar had no other option as the brahman was very hungry and would soon return. he called his son and he came running and hugged him

nayanar and his wife couldnt control their tears, his wife said she will not be able to tolerate this and left tthe place

nayanar made his heart into a stone and made a curry of his son

the brahman entered their house and asked for the curry. nayanar's wife didnt like the brahman and went inside a room

siruthondar nayanar served his son's curry and the brahman said to call his child as he doesnt have food in a childless house

siruthondar nayanar couldnt hide his emotions and  said that the curry he served is his sons' the brahman said he doesnt  belive and asked him to call his son

nayanar couldnt stop crying the brahman himself called his son and he came runnign and hugged his father, his wife who heard the voice of her son too was shocked

the brahman took th eform of lord shiva accompanied  with parvathi and blessed the family

lord shiva said that he was very much moved by his devotion and granted his family liberation

Dear Rama
Nice story.  The lesson is that we should have belief in God who will take take care of us.Shiva himself calling the son by his name Seerala.  Son immediately appears before them and everyone feels happy.
