According to the story, all the villagers in Gokul worshiped Indra Dev for a good harvest, good climate. The villagers used to dance and sing together every year for their worship and worshiped. In his childhood, Shri Krishna asked his father Nand Baba why and why do they worship this pooja? Then his father told him that all this is done to greet Indra Dev, because he gave us such climate and natural resources for our cultivation and for our livelihood. But Krishna ji believed that he should greet the Govardhan mountain for his climate, not Indra Dev's. Everyone liked Balkrishna and all started abandoning Indra's worship and worshiping the Govardhan mountain. From this, Indra Dev ji got angry and he treated this behavior of the citizen as an insult. As a punishment, he brought a storm in the village and caused a storm all around. It was sad to be mourned by all the villages. The situation became such that everyone's life was in danger. In this way, Bal Krishna provided protection to the Govardhan Mountain on his small finger and the villagers, all the villagers stayed in the shelter of Govardhan Mountain for seven days. After this he also fought with Indra Dev, in which Indra Dev's pride was broken. They realized that the climate they considered themselves to be great was their duty. They also realized that their pride is wrong. From that day onwards, the worship of Govardhan is worshiped from Deepawali the next day.
