Often, the rain or snow falls on only one side of the mountain, the windward side. The other side of the mountain, the leeward side, which receives much less rain or snow. is said to be ' rain shadow'
So is a shadow formed or something?
Ladakh is a rain shadow region. Here it doesn't rain. In orographic rainfall, we have plenty of rainfall on one side of the mountain and no rainfall on the other side(like Ladakh). No shadow is formed, it's just a name.

So the term just means that the leeward side only gets the warm and dry air while the other side is wet and gets moist and cool air currents
Yes, absolutely right. It's not really necessary that the leeward region gets warm air. We have some cold deserts as examples.
What are the after effects of a rain shadow?
Does it cause a desert or a non fertile land on the other side
Yes it does. Ladakh is a desert because it is the leeward side.
