In this Dec. 3, 2012 photo, a portrait of Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar, a dalit leader and architect of the Indian Constitution, hangs on the wall as Rajeev Chawla, the government administrator who created Bhoomi, a program that digitized Karnataka state's 20 million handwritten land records, speaks to The Associated Press at his office in Bangalore, India.
