I really like 'fping' for use in shell scripts.  See:
http://www.fping.com/ and http://fping.sourceforge.net/man/

It can be 'yum installed' from the CentOS RPMforge repo.

So in your script you can just do
fping -c 10 <dest1> <dest2> ... <destN>

I don't understand exactly what 'scripts which launches 10 pings' and 
'execution of single shell scripts' means.  So don't think I can help 
with the scripting part...
