Efforts to revive the Tolstoy Farm, a desolate area which once was a thriving commune run by Mahatma Gandhi, has received a major boost with several Indian companies in South Africa pledging support.

Tolstoy Farm, some 30 km from Johannesburg, was once a thriving self-sufficient community, but fell into disuse and was lying derelict for many years, with just the foundation of Gandhi's original house still remaining.

Visits by Indian leaders resulted in substantial donations, including a pledge of Rs 1 crore from Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan, which led to the first phase of a Garden of Remembrance being officially launched last year by Indian High Commissioner Ruchi Ghanashyam.
