He selected to undertake an engineering degree instead of a medical degree in order to better focus on his swimming career. Under the sports quota, he was number one in his state of Tamil Nadu for the MBBS merit list. His father and mentor said "My son wants to continue swimming. He is the national champion and does not want to be tied down by a rigorous academic schedule." (timesofindia.indiatimes.com, 06 Jul 2009)

His father R.N. Jayaprakash opened up a swimming school after the success of his son. He was motivated to start a swimming school where children like Agnishwar could train and develop their talents in the pool, something he found difficult to find for his son. (turtlesswimschool.com, 07 May 2010)
