    This is for some religion project. It just says events of hinduism. I was going to put the festivals but that's the next part I have to do so its obviously not talking about that stuff.

    You did not ask a good question, nor a complete question. There are many events, from holy days, to historical, It is one of the worlds oldest religions.

    You need to be specific what you want.

    It appears you need to ask the teacher what "events" they want.

    That's why I don't understand how to get this information if she didn't say anything specific. All it says is events.
