The day immediately following Diwali is known as "Padwa" or "Govardhan Puja" in some regions of India. It is also referred to as "Annakut" in certain areas. Padwa is the first day of the Hindu month of Kartik, which usually falls on the day after Diwali.

This day holds significance for various reasons in different parts of India. In some regions, it is celebrated as a day to honor the bond between husbands and wives, similar to the festival of Karwa Chauth. In other areas, Padwa is dedicated to the worship of cows, particularly in the rural and agricultural communities, as cows are considered sacred in Hinduism.

Govardhan Puja, celebrated on the same day, commemorates the lifting of the Govardhan Hill by Lord Krishna to protect the people of Vrindavan from the wrath of Lord Indra. It is a day when devotees create a small mountain of food, called an "Annakut," and offer it to Lord Krishna as a symbol of their gratitude.

So, the day after Diwali can have different names and customs depending on the region and the specific traditions followed by the people.
