I dont have any relatives or friends in France, Hopefully I will be staying in a Hotel in Paris. Can any one kindly advise me, what are the tourist attractions I can visit during this 10 days OR a sample travel Itinerary.? I hope that it will be of great help with my visa application/

I’d peruse Wikitravel's ("http://wikitravel.org/en/Paris”) Paris article. Not 100% accurate but it’s a good starting point for figuring out what to do.

Your best bet, believe it or not, would be to get a Fodor's or a Frommer's, and have a thorough read through and decide which regions strike your fancy. YOu really can't go wrong with any of them, France is a wonderful place throughout.
You could also spend an entire week in Paris and just scratch the surface as well.
Also, it depends on the time of year - a trip to Giverney should be done in April-September, as the house and gardens are not open all year, and he gardens look fantastic in early summer.

Do you have particular interests as far as food, wine, art or history? It is possible to devote entire adventures in France to any of these topics, at a level of whatever depth you care to explore them. You could also only be mildly interested in any particular one of these topics, which would, of course greatly influence whatever advice you were to get.

Besides the usual attractions listed in most guide books, since you are an engineer, Musée des Arts et Métiers has lots of scientific instruments and inventions on display, which may be be of interest to you.
