Shyam Lal Yadava was born on 5 July 1953 at Ghanshyampur, Uttar Pradesh to Tahalal Yadava and Lakhani. During his early days in middle/high school, he was more interested in wrestling than in studies! He was a regular trainee in his village akhara (wrestling camp). However, Yadava suffered a fracture in his left leg due to a fall from a tree. As a result he could not pursue his primary interest for a long time. During this period he started taking interest in studies and never looked back. He completed his B Sc in 1974 from Gorakhpur University. Then he joined Banaras Hindu University (BHU), Varanasi and completed his M Sc in Mathematics in 1977 with distinction. At BHU he worked for his PhD in the area of differential geometry. He completed his doctoral work in two years and in 1979 joined the TIFR Bangalore Centre, IISc Campus as a participant of the joint IISc–TIFR programme in Applications of Mathematics. After completing this programme successfully he became a staff member of TIFR in 1981. From 1981 to 2007 he served at various positions in TIFR: Research Assistant: 1981–87; Research Associate: 1987–90; Fellow: 1990–92; Reader: 1992–97; Associate Professor: 1997–2000; Professor: From 2000 until his demise.
