" I have not written many things. As it will be dishonourable for me to spill all the beans. There is at least ten percent which I will never talk about."
New Delhi, Aug 7 - Sonia Gandhi never planned to write a book and hence her recent statement in the media that she was serious about writing one is surprising, former external affairs minister Natwar Singh said here Thursday.

Natwar Singh, whose autobiography One Life is Not Enough has created a flutter in the country, said his book was not individual-oriented though the media made it out to be by focusing on his revelations about the Congress president.

It's not an individual-centred book, though the media centred it on one who now says will write a book. Normally, she doesn't respond to anything and I'm surprised she did, Singh said during the release of his memoirs at the India International Centre.

She had said she will not write an autobiography but Priyanka can write her biography and she will join as a co-author, Natwar Singh said.

He said he was waiting for Sonia Gandhi to write her book as she had said that was the only way the truth can come out.

I was very happy and I hope she starts writing tomorrow as she is one of the world's most powerful people. She owes it to the nation. She has said this is how the truth will come out. I'm waiting to see what kind of a truth it is, he said.

Natwar Singh further said there were certain things which he did not reveal in his book.

I have not written many things. As it will be dishonourable for me to spill all the beans. There is at least ten percent which I will never talk about.

The book, among other things, says Sonia Gandhi renounced the prime minister's post in 2004 not because of her inner voice as she claimed but because her son Rahul Gandhi feared that she may be assassinated.
