I believe that the colour pink indicates good health and strength as it is generally stated that" i am in the pink of my health" meaning good health. The business papers are pink (exception The Business Line) which a good state of our economy and financial position.

Its because in past the Pink colored bleached paper was cheaper than white ones. Later on it turned into tradition. Hence the Business Newspaper rremains Pink.
