From N C Kelkar's biography of Lokmanya Tilak (my translation):
`In one of the letters written to the present author from Mandalay (prison), Tilak compares
the newspapers to (weighing) balance. He says: "A newspaper must be like a good balance, stable and sensitive at the same time."
`If some new and glorious sentiment emerges in the country, the newspaper must deal with it and communicate it to its readers. But...it must not get engulfed by that sentiment. A good balance, when a weight is added to one of the scales, tilts, but the moment it is removed, the pendulum should return to the centre. A balance which doesn't tilt at all isn't a good balance. The one which remains tilted even after the weight is removed too is useless.'
