    Erm.. I believe China trades with the rest of the world like no other country.
    So your perspective is when comparing it to other currencies devaluation is OK if you just want to show overall reaction towards a strong dollar, but an informative graph would be to plot the impact of a yuan devaluation impacting its major trading partners in various sectors.

    Why INR (for that matter SE Asian) follows Yuan Devaluation ?
    Seems it is carry trade which bunches China with all the Asia Pacific.
    It is well known that several Billions (nearing 2 Trillions) have been pumped up into these markets since 2008 by carry trades which is being unwound (may be slowly). Recently several Hedge Funds have reported losses in this carry trade.
