Answer: Option 3


Mahatma Gandhi - the father of the Nation of India - has influenced many remarkable leaders around the world in leading non-violent mass movements successfully, like Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela. But he was deeply influenced himself by the writings, philosophy and ideas of the celebrated Russian author Leo Tolstoy, particularly in his early years. This influence motivated him to set up a co-operative colony called Tolstoy Farm near Johannesburg, South Africa and Gandhi attributes the success of the final phase of the satyagraha campaign in South Africa between 1908 and 1914 to the "spiritual purification and penance" afforded by the Tolstoy Farm.
